“Protecting Your House Of Worship” – Security Training for All Faith-Based Communities
It is no secret that faith-based communities across the country have been facing a growing threat from xenophobia, bigotry, and hatred. The Jewish Federation of Cleveland, in partnership with the Anti-Defamation League, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), and U.S. Attorney’s Office, is hosting a security training session that is open to all Cleveland faith-based communities, called “Protecting Your House of Worship.”
Attendees of this two-hour training session will learn advanced prevention planning strategies, as well as best-practice security protocols and procedures that are being utilized across the country. This interactive training will incorporate situation-specific examples, such as an “active shooter” scenario. Attendees will also hear a panel discussion on current climate surrounding civil rights and hate crimes, and learn how best to work with the proper authorities on such matters.
Families, employees, and volunteers from all faiths are invited to attend the training – this includes clergy, front-office staff, board members, ushers/greeters, and teachers/tutors. There is no cost to attend. To RSVP, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
