Security Update

From the Federation Security Team

Please Be Aware

The government will continue to present rebuttal witnesses in the death penalty qualification stage of the synagogue shooter trial. Next week the jury will deliberate on the defendant’s eligibility. If the jury decides he is eligible the trial will move on to the death penalty phase. That phase is expected to last several weeks.

There have been several reports of antisemitic graffiti spraypainted on pathways and public structures. Please notify us via the Incident Report form if you observe graffiti so we can coordinate with law enforcement.

Please continue to report white supremacy stickers or flyers observed to us via the Incident Report form and include a photo of the flyer or sticker.
