Who Gave You Permission? Manny Waks In Conversation

Arts & Culture

When Manny Waks went public about the sexual abuse he had suffered as an adolescent at the Yeshivah Centre he attended in Australia, his ultra-Orthodox Jewish family were shunned and intimidated by their community. Forced to leave Australia, he went on to establish Kol v’Oz, an international organisation based in Israel, which advocates for survivors of child sexual abuse within the global Jewish community and holds those in power to account.

Manny’s recently published book, Who Gave You Permission? is his raw, powerful memoir, the story of breaking a code of silence, and the extraordinary toll it took. Here, in conversation, he discusses the book, his story and the vital work of Kol v’Oz.
