Please Be Aware
Jury selection is ongoing in the federal hate crime trial of the accused defendant in the 10/27/2018 attack on three synagogues in the Tree of Life building and is expected to continue for one or two more weeks. We have seen an increase in online hate-related rhetoric and are working very closely with law enforcement to mitigate potential threats. Please be vigilant.
If you see antisemitic stickers or flyers posted in the area please notify us immediately using our on-line contact form. Submit an Incident Report online →
We are bringing in security experts and intelligence analysts from Secure Community Network (SCN) to bolster our security infrastructure during the trial.
