Westchester’s Jewish community meets with law enforcement to discuss security


Members of Westchester Countys Jewish community met with members of law enforcement and government officials on Wednesday to discuss security in the wake of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“Given what happened in Pittsburgh and also whats happening in Brooklyn and other areas of New York city, security is on the tip of everybody’s mind,” said Westchester Jewish Council Board Member Jeff Kapelus.

In the face of a recent rise in anti-semitic incidents, synagogues across the nation have been reviewing their security measures in order to keep their members safe.
