Like every decision you make for your congregation, your security plans should be consistent with your mission. Synagogues can be welcoming and inclusive, and also safe and secure.
Join us for a webinar about creating a mission-driven security plan on February 28, 1:00-2:00 PM ET. We will explore factors to consider when developing security plans that can support the safety and comfort of members and seekers of all backgrounds.
Our presenters will be Rabbi Leora Kaye and Rachel Hall. Rabbi Leora Kaye is the director of program at the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ), where she leads the creative advancement of the core priorities of the Reform Movement. Prior to joining the URJ, Leora served as director of community engagement at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in New York. Rachel Hall is a program manager for Audacious Hospitality at the URJ, where she helps guide the URJ’s work in diversity, equity, and inclusion.
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 is the second in a series of webinars about 21st-century congregational security. The third and final webinar in this series, on crisis communications, will take place on March 28, 1:00-2:00 PM ET.
