A Statement from Federation on the Anti-Semitic Attack in Monsey, New Jersey and Information on Community Security Workshop
As we confront a resurgence in anti-Semitism in an unprecedented polarized environment, we must remain united and unyielding in our efforts to fight this scourge on all fronts. We must anticipate what is likely ahead, prepare for that reality and remain vigilant in our culture of security. The safety of our institutions is a collective responsibility. We must work closely with law enforcement and our national and local partners to build upon the critical work that is already underway and to ensure that our synagogues, schools and community institutions remain safe and secure.
The Federation Office of Community Security provides on-site risk assessments to enhance physical security and trains and educates community leadership and institutions on crisis preparedness and response. We encourage widespread participation in these ongoing opportunities, including the January 9, 2020 communitywide security workshop, to be held in collaboration with the Anti-Defamation League at the Greater Miami Jewish Federation. Click here to RSVP.
Now more than ever, we call on our elected and civic leaders to join us in remaining unwavering in demanding zero tolerance for insidious bigotry and hate. We know we are not alone in our desire for a more tolerant society and stand with all people of good will in working toward that end.
