CJP is focused on the health and well-being of our entire community, including our volunteers, staff, and everyone who participates in Jewish life. We are currently planning to hold this event. Determining whether to proceed with scheduled events will be informed by the latest data and guidance from public officials. If circumstances change, we will update this information and be in touch with registrants.
Creating a balance between an open and welcoming environment while maintaining safety and security is a challenge faced by many Jewish institutions.
This session provides an overview of threats and a review of local security incidents. Participants are exposed to physical and procedural security concepts and learn about the key role individuals can play to improve — or degrade — security at their institution. This training also provides those who welcome people to Jewish institutions with strategies and tools to foster a welcoming atmosphere while maintaining security.
Topics include situational awareness and behavioral recognition, emergency response plans, and communication. Simple role-playing and Q&A is used to reinforce the training.
Who should attend?
Clergy, professionals, greeters/ushers, lay leaders, and anyone from your organization who interacts with the public or broader community. As a reminder, please feel free to forward this information to your local law enforcement partners, clergy, and staff from the broader religious community who would benefit from this training.
