Security Update

From the Federation Security Team

Please Be Aware

The American Jewish Committee (AJC) just released its report for the Annual State of Antisemitism in the US. Per the report, more than 9 in 10 American Jews and three quarters of the general public believe antisemitism is a problem in the US.  63% of American Jews say the status of Jews in the U.S. is less secure compared to 41% one year ago, and 31% in 2021.  Read the full report on ajc.org.

So far in 2024, the Jewish Federation has logged 36 incidents in our Virtual Command Center. We remain in a heightened threat environment and are working closely with law enforcement to monitor potential threat activity.

On February 26 from 7:00 to 8:00 PM, Kelly Fishman, Regional Director of the ADL, will discuss the “generational divide” among Jews in this country, our communities, and families regarding Israel and Gaza. She will discuss these differences in terms of their impact on our society, the rise in antisemitism, and actions we can take, especially when those near and dear to us have completely different perspectives.
