Experiences and perceptions of domestic abuse will be sought in the first survey into violence against women in the Jewish community.
Jewish Women's Aid will survey both service users and other Jewish women about domestic violence and the way it is perceived.
It will be conducted by Dr Sarah Abramson, senior policy researcher at the Board of Deputies, who said: "Whatever we might think, no research has ever found that domestic violence is more prevalent in any race, ethnic group or religion. It will affect one-in-four Jewish women.
