CST Security Bulletin following Pittsburgh shooting
29 October 2018
Following the tragic mass casualty shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, USA, this Shabbat, CST has sent this security bulletin to all UK Jewish communal venues, requesting that our community remains calm, vigilant and cooperative with security measures.
CST has been in close contact with Police since the appalling attack in Pittsburgh and we stress that there is no information suggesting a specific or imminent threat to the Jewish community in the UK. Nevertheless, we are advising commercial security companies and security volunteers operating at all Jewish locations to ensure that they perform their duties as rigorously and thoroughly as possible, and we ask the Jewish community to remain calm, vigilant and continue to lead its way of life to the full.
