We Grow Stronger TOGETHER

On the heels of the most heinous act of Anti-Semitism on U.S. soil that occurred in Pittsburgh, our local community as well as the global Jewish community remain on heightened awareness. We are alarmed at the increasing acts of hate and violence permeating our country and a climate that tolerates indifference.

Earlier this week, the Jewish Community Campus received a suspicious package that required a full evacuation including pre-school and day school children, teens, adults, seniors and staff. The incident was handled seamlessly thanks to the strength and clarity of our safety and security protocols coupled with the strong relationships we have with local law enforcement. Although the package did not pose a threat, we were prepared and responsive nonetheless.

We are grateful for the dedication and commitment of the professional staff and first responders who help ensure a safe and secure campus each and every day. This is, and will continue to be, our first priority.

We Grow Stronger TOGETHER.
