Shooting at a Jewish School in France

19 Mar 2012 by CST

At least four people, including three children, have been killed in a shooting at a Jewish school in Toulouse, south west France.

CST is appalled by this senseless attack on innocent Jewish schoolchildren and teachers. We extend our deepest sympathy and solidarity to the French Jewish community at this tragic event.

CST is not aware of any specific information indicating a threat to the UK Jewish community, but this is a reminder of the general threat of terrorism to Jewish schools and other communal buildings. We are in close contact with police and request that our community remains calm, and continues to support and cooperate with security measures at schools and other Jewish locations.

You can find security advice for your building on the CST website here.

“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.”
