Jewish Federation Awards $25,000 to Upgrade Security in Local Synagogues


The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County has awarded $25,000 in Security Upgrade grants to five synagogues in Orange County: Congregation Beth Hillel in Walden, Monroe Temple Beth El, Kol Yisrael in Newburgh, Temple Beth Shalom in Florida, and Temple Sinai in Middletown.


“With hundreds of individuals coming to our synagogues for the Jewish High Holy Days, these grants are vital to ensuring the safety of our communities. We have unfortunately witnessed a steady rise of anti-Semitism, both nationally and right here in Orange County,” said Rabbi Rachel Rubenstein, Director of Education and Engagement at the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County. “We will not wait until the next incident occurs. It is our duty to be proactive in protecting and strengthening our Jewish communities. These grants are one step forward in our continued fight against anti-Semitism, and toward our vision of an Orange County free of all hatred.”


This grant is part of Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County’s Zachor Anti-Semitism Initiative. Through the Zachor Initiative, The Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County is fighting anti-Semitism and hatred in Orange County through education, public awareness, and community organizing.
