Current security situation

10 Aug 2011 by CST

CST website has been updated with security advice following widescale public disturbances and riots in London, Birmingham and elsewhere.

To be clear, there is no suggestion that any of the violence has been deliberately directed against Jews or Jewish communal property.

The violence is, however, quite indiscriminate and could as easily affect the Jewish community as any other.

The situation remains highly volatile, and there is no way of knowing at this time if it will further deteriorate.

We advise calm at this difficult time and request that Police and CST advice be closely followed.

“It’s great to be able to show my support again for Community Security Trust and the brilliant work you do. On behalf of everyone here let me thank all the staff and volunteers who work so hard together with the Police and the wider community to protect the Jewish people and to make this charity as successful as it is today.I believe CST is a model for all our communities in Britain.”
