Shooting at a Jewish School in France

March 19th, 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.

“"The Guardian of Israel doesn't slumber or sleep". This feeling of safety and security that we search for and need is gratefully appreciated when it's given to us by the CST. It really is a pleasure to work with the CST and to be looked after and cared for by them. Where ever I go throughout Britain, in all our Synagogues from north to south the impact and help given by the CST is warmly valued.”
