Donate to the JCC of Greater New Haven Security Improvement Fund
This past year has been difficult for the Jewish community. We've seen far too many brazen anti-Semitic attacks resulting in the harm and killing of Jewish people. We join with the entire Jewish community in expressing outrage at these horrific attacks, which are part of a growing epidemic of anti-Semitic violence. It is incomprehensible to think that we are not safe in a home, a supermarket, or a sanctuary for prayer. It is unacceptable.
The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven continues to monitor these events closely and collaborate with local and national law enforcement agencies. We are assured that there is no immediate danger in our community. The Jewish Federation has also worked closely with our partners at Secure Community Network on preventative measures and security training.
The Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven has designated a fund towards the security of our community building. If you would like to join in this effort, the Security Fund will ensure that the security needs of the community are met following this horrific attack. Thanks to a grant from the State of Connecticut, every dollar you give will be matched to support efforts to strengthen and heighten security in the Beckerman Lender Jewish Community Building.
In addition to this horrible attack, we also recall the seventh anniversary of the brutal Sandy Hook massacre. We must remain strong and vigilant, and together combat the evil forces among us. However, we must not let fear stop us from pursuing what is beautiful in life and our community.
