Security Update

Yesterday’s abhorrent violence in the Pico-Robertson neighborhood of Los Angeles, the most densely populated Jewish area on the West Coast, is yet another example of the rising antisemitism and violence targeting Jews. Harassment, intimidation, and physical attacks against our Jewish community cannot be tolerated or normalized.

Jews, like everyone else, have the right to live, pray, and gather in peace. We respect the constitutional freedom to protest. However, what we saw yesterday and are witnessing time and again across the nation, are protests that devolve into excuses to target and harm Jews.

Our Community Security Initiative is in constant communication with our local law enforcement partners and Jewish institutions to protect our community and bring the perpetrators of yesterday’s violence to justice. We are conducting security briefings and coordinating with our federal, state, and local elected officials to create an action plan to further safeguard our Jewish community.

We thank President Biden, Los Angeles Mayor Karen Bass, Governor Gavin Newsom, and the LAPD for their unequivocal condemnation of antisemitism and support for the Jewish community.
