Unfortunately in these troubled times security deserves its own page on the website. Why, because we all have a duty of care to both our own kehilla and that of the wider community.

Security covers two areas of responsibility:

1.    Protecting the wider community - No we are not asking you all to become members of the CST, not that that would be a bad thing, instead we all have a duty to make the authorities aware of ANY incident that can be construed as anti-semitic.

So what should you do if you see or experience an incident:

a.    Notify the Police - Remember racial attacks are an offence and the Police will take action.  The CST classifies as an antisemitic incident any malicious act aimed at Jewish people, organisations or property, where there is evidence that the incident has antisemitic motivation or content, or that the victim was targeted because they are (or are believed to be) Jewish.

b.    Notify the Shule Office - We need to know what is happening in our area, one day’s verbal attack could be tomorrow’s physical attack. No matter how small the incident please notify us.

Telephone: 0161 980 8846

c.    Notify the CST, they have third-party reporting status. This means that if you are the victim of an antisemitic incident and you are unable or unwilling to report the incident directly to the Police yourself, we are able to do so on your behalf. Any information given will be treated in strictest confidence.

Telephone: 0161 792 6666
Emergency 24 hour pager: 0800 980 0668

2.    Protecting our Kehilla - Yes we are asking for your help. Every week we provide security for Shabbat services and the Haggim.  We are constantly in need of volunteers who will make themselves available for a 30 minute session during the service.

If you are not currently on the rota, don’t be shy, contact the Shule office to volunteer.

Neil & Mark are committed to ensuring the security of the Kehilla so if you have any issues you want to discuss come and see us at Shule, or contact us via the Shule office.
