Exercise caution but no immediate need for worry

Many of you may have heard of the possibility of increased levels of organized antisemitic activity by white supremacist groups and networks planned for this Shabbos. This information has been spreading through various channels and we have received a number of inquiries as to the validity of this information.

We have reached out to high level personnel at the NYPD and have been assured that there is nothing to be overly worried about. As far as the NYPD can assess at this time, there is no specific threat in New York.

Nevertheless, out of an abundance of caution, the NYPD will be increasing patrols at shuls and other high visibility areas.

As always we encourage everyone to be vigilant and if you see something say something. In NYC call 1-888-NYC SAFE or in case of emergency call 911.

Have a Good Shabbos
