Rabbi Cytron-Walker of the Beth Israel synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, was quoted in The New York Times that the security sessions he participated through the Secure Community Network (SCN), affiliate of the national Jewish Federation system, taught him and his fellow congregants that “if you get in this situation, you have to do whatever you can. It gave me the courage and the sensibility to act when we were able.”

Training is critical to our security. We’d like to invite our entire community to participate in a new training course designed by the Secure Community Network (SCN) called

BeAware: The Introduction to
Situational Awareness

Topics Covered:

  • Enhancing situational awareness
