Join us in creating a more secure and prepared Jewish Community
The sharp rise in hate crimes and antisemitic attacks and rhetoric throughout the world has left the Jewish community with grave concerns about individual and community safety. The increase in antisemitism has led us to once again reassess our needs and financial investment in security across our Jewish community. The Jewish Federation, our Synagogues and Agencies are focused on a proactive approach that takes into account our institutions’ diverse interests and organizational missions. We have come together to financially support this initiative, but we need you to help us make sure that our Jewish community is secure and safe.
It is a goal of the Safe Indy Security Initiative to identify and assess any potential threats to our Community. It is extremely important to report incidents as soon as you witness them. Keep in mind we are collecting all information that affects our Community to include Antisemitic behavior and acts. Please use this form to report all suspicious activity and Anti-Semitic acts. This information will be reviewed and shared with the appropriate local, state and federal law enforcement for action and resolution.
We are undertaking this effort in partnership with Secure Community Network (SCN). SCN is the national safety and security organization that works to implement best practice security programs on behalf of Jewish institutions and communities across the U.S.
