Our Story

A support group where sexual abuse survivors reinforce and sustain each other in their shared journey towards healing.

“The idea was like a lightbulb flicking on, calling me to help foster a safe space for survivors, encouraging me to create a path for women to see who they really are and heal together…”
Zeldy Broyde, Ray of Hope Founder

Ray of Hope was first established in 2019 as a bi-weekly support group in Brooklyn that connects Jewish women, empowering them with tools to heal from sexual abuse. Built on the overwhelming success of the initial group, Ray of Hope today offers the warmth of a healing, comforting and supportive environment in Jewish communities all across the country.
