One aspect of creating a comprehensive security plan for your congregation that can be particularly challenging is setting policies around guns. If you are hiring security guards, should those guards be armed? If your state allows for individuals to carry firearms, should you allow them to do so in your building? Should you encourage it? How do you inform the congregation and local law enforcement about your policies?
Join us for a webinar on Monday, June 24, 1pm ET to learn from leaders of congregations that have grappled with these questions. Discover what process they followed, what decisions they made, and what the impact has been. The session will be moderated by Rabbi Maurice Harris, associate director for Thriving Communities and Israel Affairs Specialist at Reconstructing Judaism.
The recording of this webinar will be posted in the Safety and Security group in The Tent for those interested but unable to participate in the live session.
This webinar series is offered jointly by the Union for Reform Judaism, United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (USCJ), Reconstructing Judaism, the National Association for Temple Administration (NATA), and the North American Association of Synagogue Executives (NAASE).
