CST Security Bulletin following Pittsburgh shooting

29 Oct 2018 by CST

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.

“"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.”
