Security for our Jewish Community


With threats and anti-Semitic attacks against Jewish communities and institutions on the rise, CJP’s role in providing professional security advice and support has never been more important. We offer training, assessments, and consultations free of charge to Jewish institutions in the cities and towns that CJP serves. Limited funding for physical security improvements may also be available to qualifying organizations.

  • The Jewish Emergency Management System (JEMS)

    JEMS, a program of CJP, provides coordination and response in times of emergency. We offer robust security communications, alerts, and resources for professionals and lay leaders in the Jewish community.

  • Grants

    Your organization may qualify for state and federal grants to improve security, and CJP can help you understand the application process.

For more information about CJP’s communal security programs and services, contact us.
