One of the 2 young girls who committed suicide earlier this week in Jerusalem was the victim of sexual abuse in the family.

The girls, aged 19 and 24,  were cousins and came from ultra-Orthodox families. They jumped together from the 5th floor of a building in the Givat Shaul neighborhood.

The abuse victim had received counselling but due to family pressure asked to end the treatment.

After this, her mental state deteriorated. She left a suicide note explaining that she didn't want to be a disappointment to her family.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked Manny Waks, the founder and CEO of Kol v'Oz, an Israel-based international organization which addresses the issue of child sexual abuse in the global Jewish community, how common is sexual abuse in the ultra-Orthodox community.
