Synagogue Security Training: Protect Your Community

The Rise of Anti-Semitism in Florida

Anti-Semitism and hate crimes have been on the rise in Florida over the past several years. According to a study by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), hate crimes against Jewish people accounted for 80% of all religiously motivated incidents in 2020. With this alarming trend, it’s crucial for synagogues to be prepared for any potential threats.

Is Your Synagogue Prepared?

Would your synagogue know how to respond to a heckler, disturbance, fight, stabbing, or shooting? Police response times can average 11 minutes nationally, meaning your synagogue must be ready to protect its members in those critical initial moments.
