Updated August 2, 2023
SECURITY: There are no known threats at this time.
A death sentence was issued in the trial of the attacker who killed 11 people at Congregation Dor Hadash, New Light Congregation, and Tree of Life Congregation in 2018. He has been found guilty on all 63 charges, including 11 counts of hate crimes. The defense did not contest his guilt during this phase of the trial.
Please be mindful of the timing and stay vigilant with security. We are tracking any potential threat activity in close collaboration with law enforcement. We are not aware of any direct or indirect threats, but please plan accordingly as you prepare for Shabbat and remember to immediately report suspicious activity to law enforcement and then to the Jewish Federation via our Incident Report form. Our Jewish Federation command post will continue to closely monitor social media platforms for concerning information. The verdict will likely bring a significant media presence in our community.
