Unknown Speaker
00:26:38 Jessica and Graie:School teachers shall be placed in every province, district, and city. In any city where there’s no place for children to learn, the people of the city are placed under a ban until they place teachers for the children. And if they still don’t [place teachers], the city is undone. The world is maintained only by the breath of school children. Send children to be taught [in school] at 6 or 7 years old, according to the strength and development of the child. But don’t send children less than 6 years old to school. … We don’t stop children [from being sent to school, from learning] even for [the purpose of] rebuilding the Temple.- Mishneh Torah 2:1-2

You mentioned the Hebrew Free Loan Society. It is very active in the NY area and offers a variety of loans including education, health, and others. HFLS serves more than just the Jewish community and is available to individuals. HFLS.org

Thanks, Gray and Keren. All that you said are the premises motivating my question. If you or anyone else on this call have connections for where to go for those very particular trainings, please hit me up. My comrades and I in my congregation are saying all those principled arguments. We want to make sure we're asking all the right people with knowledge for *tangible, practical* guidance. My question here is part of that, so if anyone has resources or connections, please let me know! aryeh.bernstein@gmail.com
Micah Weiss

I share Aryeh’s appreciate and request for specific best practices/guidance for synagogues - micahweiss@gmail.com

I think 1960s. COINTELPRO using Jews as a tool to break up the Panthers
Michelle Lawson

Living in Birmingham, AL, our synagogue there had police officers guard us ever since the bombing of the Baptist church that killed those four little girls and when there was a bomb detected at the synagogue. It made us felt safe, but honestly the thing that kept us safe was always reaching out to not only the bigger Christian community but particularly the Islamic community as well. We kept a united front with a lot of things because both of our communities were so small there. But it's not like that in Buffalo.
aryeh
52:06
yes!
Zahara

Also would love to be looped in on any further convo about specific tools and trainings for alternative synagogue security.I think my synagogue may be ready to hear about this - and also they don't want to be the first synagogue to do so. I'd be happy to be part of creating and sharing resources. korn.sandra@gmail.com
