A committee has been formed to serve the Howard County Jewish Community in order to ensure the safety and security of our organizations in places we pray, and places our children learn. Recent activity of the committee included assistance with security preparations for the High Holidays at synagogues wanting or needing security recommendations. In addition, we contacted the Howard County Police Department with the addresses of our places of worship and religious schools, and dates of the holidays, to ensure appropriate awareness and coverage.
Going forward, our committee will be coordinating requests from Howard County Synagogues and School Programs for security audits. We will then facilitate a seminar for those audited programs who wished to gain additional skills in grant writing for future Homeland Security RFP's.
