Discussion of Alison Feit's “Modesty From Cats, Sexual Morality From Doves: Orthodox Jewry's Silence in the Face of Sexual Misconduct”

Annette Richard, M.Ps.

This discussion elaborates on some aspects of the “systematized dissociative processes” active in the Orthodox Jewish community leading to the silencing of child sexual abuse by their members as described in Feit's article. It argues that most closed-off religious or cultural communities are prone to the same complicit silencing. Denials of differences among community members, and denials of sameness with outsiders, are seen as desperate dissociative reductions of experiential complexity (Brothers, 2008) in the aftermath of historical traumas.
