Michàl Mor Barak, an associate professor in the School of Social Work, speaks at the final gathering of USC Hillel Jewish Center’s faculty and staff luncheon series on Monday, April 5. Mor-Barak, introduced by Marilyn Flynn, dean of USC’s School of Social Work, discussed “Domestic Violence: The Los Angeles-Tel Aviv Partnership 2000 Project,” a partnership between USC and Tel Aviv University, and how both institutions are looking at ways to prevent domestic violence. She also compared how American and Israeli scholars and activists are responding to this issue. Since the luncheon fell in the middle of Passover, Hillel’s gourmet caterer prepared a kosher l’Pesach meal for those who ordered lunch.
