  1. We once had a neighbor who beat his wife. We knew because we could hear it reverberate through the building walls at 2AM.

    All the neighbors did what they could (knocking on their door/calling their number) to get him to stop in the middle of an attack. It helped. Women in the building also urged her to get help or seek shelter. That didn't help so much.

    Eventually, they divorced, but not before going through several more excruciating years together at the urging of Rabbanim who thought then and still do now that it's better to keep on trying and getting beaten over and over again - even after all of the counseling sessions - than to destroy a marriage.
