Jails are brimming with prisoners, with little to no rehabilitation offered; a place where men frequently come out ‘bad’ and women are regularly abused and demeaned. Joan Ruzsa, the Director of Rittenhouse, a Toronto based NGO offering services for men and women in jail joins Ve’ahavta Radio to speak to our listeners about people in jail, who they are, and how her organizations works toward enhancing their lives.
Joan has communicated with people in jail for over 9 years and brought hope to individuals who otherwise live very bleak lives. Please listen to this fascinating interview. You may not agree with all her thoughts and points, however will agree she is certainly compelling and involved in tikun olam (repairing the world). Your thoughts are always appreciated.
