Around the world, violent attacks target Jewish people and institutions. Our own JCC has been the target of receiving telephoned bomb threats. Security is posted at synagogues and at day schools; in places around the world such as France and Venezuela, five-year-old children walk past armed guards to get to the playground. Jewish students arriving at college encounter toxic anti-Israel slogans. Federation is helping to restore a sense of security, sharing expertise and funding to keep children safe. We are standing up against hatred so that Jews everywhere can walk without fear, into a synagogue, a Jewish museum—or simply down the street.
