Security and Safety: Strategies For Challenging Times

Tuesday, September 15, 2020, 1:00pm – 2:00pm EDT

Reeling from attacks on Jews and Jewish institutions in 2018–19, and now facing the impact of Covid-19, leading Jewish organizations and Jewish communities throughout the United States are developing new and innovative approaches to community security. In this session, funders will learn about work being done on the national level to secure Jewish institutions, and virtual communities — including successfully lobbying for a dramatic increase in government funding; a case study from New York, where philanthropists have invested in a serious upgrade of community security infrastructure; and opportunities to harness the energy of volunteers interested in protecting their communities.
