Be “that guy” who closes the doors that get propped open. There’s no reason–after all that has happened in the world–for people to be so selfish that they prop a door open. If you must go outside and come back in, have a partner to work with or just walk the extra distance to the main entry point. Shul members, ask your Rabbi and shul leaders what they are doing to ensure your safety.

Why only two?

You are responsible for your own security. The Rabbi and leaders are responsible for shul security.

You need to protect yourself and your family to and from shul.

Everyone who is legally eligible should be carrying a gun.

Part of that responsibility is not getting shikker every Shabbos so you have a clear mind and don’t break the law…

Wow! Incredible article! As insightful as ever. If anyone does not know, Zalman Myer-Smith is the authority in Jewish security. He currently does an incredible job in South Florida, but previously worked on the security detail of Rabbi Jonathan Sacks OBM. Incredibly, Zalman even met the late Queen of England and the Commonwealth. A greater man in security there is not.

YASHER KOACH ZALMAN!!

Ad Mosai!
