We Safeguard Our Community

Did you know? 2/3 of religious-based hate crimes target Jews, according to the FBI. Anti-Semitism is on the rise. That’s why we work with our national and global beneficiaries to ensure the safety and security of Jews living around the world. Right here at home, we are safeguarding our local facilities and the people who use them so that we can all feel comfortable living our Jewish lives. We cannot take our comfort for granted. Together, we are prepared.

Our Federation became the nation’s first faith-based institution to hold a Department of Homeland Security simulation exercise, establishing our training as a potential model for others.

With your support, Federation has expanded security throughout Jewish Cleveland. Twelve area police departments have conducted safety and security trainings in partnership with our local schools, synagogues, and agencies preparing us for how to respond in times of crisis.
