CST protect us

A PAT on the back to the dedicated volunteers of the Community Security Trust for the wonderful work they do alongside the police in enabling us to travel to and from synagogues in safety over the High Holy Days.

They work tirelessly, not just over the Yomim Noraim but at events and simchas throughout the year, ensuring these events pass off without incident.

But how sad an indictment it is in this day and age that high fences and security cabins are the order of the day at our schools and institutions as we keep a wary eye out for any potential troublemakers who could pose a serious threat to our community.

As I left the synagogue earlier this week, a police vehicle drew up. The officer approached me, asking questions and offering helpful advice should anyone suspicious be seen approaching the building.

In these difficult times when antisemitism appears to be on the rise and certain political leaders appear apathetic in their response, we salute the brave, selfless work being done to afford us the maximum safety as we go about our daily lives.
