Working to ensure safety and resilience through partnership, preparedness and vigilance.

“The GMW Community Security Initiative (CSI) not only assesses the physical security measures of our Jewish communal institutions, but also offers educational resources and training programs that empower individuals and organization to recognize and respond effectively to potential risks. By investing in community security, Federation helps to create an environment where Jewish individuals can worship, learn, and engage in communal activities with confidence and peace of mind.”
