Young Jewish women still falling prey to Muslim men

In this article, it tells how the Chemla movement's still busy working to save Jewish women from being lured into abusive relationships with Muslim men:
In the midst of ongoing conflicts in Israel, a lesser-known threat has emerged—Jewish women and girls being ensnared into marriages with Arab men. The perilous situation they face has prompted an urgent campaign aimed at securing safehouses to rescue and protect these vulnerable individuals.

The IDF handles external threats, but internal dangers persist when Jewish girls venture into secular universities or public spaces, where they encounter Arab men who aim to lure them into relationships. Tragically, many fall prey to their tactics, leading to entrapment in abusive situations within Arab villages.

One prominent organization, Chemla, operating in Israel under the guidance of Rebbitzen Rachel Baranes, has been at the forefront of rescuing Jewish women from such coercive marriages for over twenty-five years. Chemla is backed by a very prominent figure in Israel named Bentzi Gopstein, founder of Lehava. Their primary goal is to retrieve these victims and provide a path back to their Jewish roots and community.

Upon rescue, these women undergo comprehensive rehabilitation, encompassing emotional support, physical care, and spiritual nurturing. Rebbitzen Baranes ensures they receive essentials such as food, clothing, shelter, counseling, and security. Additionally, a structured program fosters their confidence and spiritual well-being, treating each rescued individual as part of an encompassing, supportive family.

However, with the escalation of conflict since October 7th, the number of distress calls from victims has surged significantly. To accommodate this growing demand, funds are being raised to establish additional safe houses. These havens offer a haven where victims can find both physical safety and the opportunity to commence their recovery journey.
Anybody who can offer help to these women will be doing a good deed. To be sure, there's considerable irony in how a secular university can prove a dangerous place for vulnerable women to fall prey to Islamists, though if we're talking about women from Haredi backgrounds, it could easily be argued that, if their own communities don't teach them about safety, this can tragically happen. And no doubt, if Jewish men, whatever their background, don't offer themselves as potentially great alternatives to these women, that's also a problem. If a Jewish man can prove the best way out of an ultra-Orthodox lifestyle for a woman, then for heaven's sake, they should show they're willing to do that, and not refrain simply because the woman comes from a Haredi background.
