Security Update

From the Federation Security Team

Please Be Aware

There have been several incidents of antisemitic graffiti this week in the Squirrel Hill area as well as Summerset Park. These incidents are under investigation. Please report graffiti to 911 if it is on private property, and 311 if on public property; then, please report it to the Federation via the Incident Report link below and include pictures when possible.

Defense attorneys in the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting trial have filed a motion for acquittal, requesting a new trial.  These types of motions are not unusual after a trial. The Government will respond to the motion, defense attorneys will then have a chance to respond and then Judge will issue an opinion sometime in early 2024.

REMINDER: We are in a heightened threat environment and are working in close collaboration with law enforcement to monitor potential threat activity. There are no known or direct threats related to our Pittsburgh Jewish community.  Continue to be vigilant; report suspicious behavior to 911 and then the Jewish Federation via the Incident Report link, below.
