CJP Communal Security Initiative


With threats and antisemitic attacks against Jewish communities and institutions on the rise, CJP’s role in providing professional security advice and support has never been more important. We offer training, assessments, and consultations free of charge to Jewish institutions in the cities and towns that CJP serves. Limited funding for physical security improvements may also be available to qualifying organizations.

  • JEMS Security Alerts & Updates

    The Jewish Emergency Management System is a partnership of CJP, the ADL, JCRC, and the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts offering alerts and updates for professionals and lay leaders.

  • Grants

    Your organization may qualify for state and federal grants to improve security, and CJP can help you understand the application process.
