"One myth about prostitution is that they make a lot of money, or that it’s about choice,” says attorney Nitzan Kahana at the “Ima Anochi Betzara” conference, the first public event sponsored by the recently formed Religious Coalition for the Struggle against Prostitution.
THE CONFERENCE featured posters created by students from the religious Emunah Appleman College of Arts and Technology in Jerusalem.
“I was in shock after learning the facts about prostitution,” recalled Shaked Perez, a second-year student at the college, who spoke to In Jerusalem. “I went home and began reading the witness statements, and felt that I needed to do something.”
Perez produced a series of three posters, each with the theme of a child’s game, to draw attention to the seriousness of the topic, and that so many children are involved.
“My goal was to get the message out more gently,” explained Perez; “for viewers to be shocked, but still be able to look at the images.”
