Join us in creating a more secure and prepared Jewish Community

The sharp rise in hate crimes and antisemitic attacks and rhetoric throughout the world, coupled with the current COVID-19 pandemic spread, has left the Jewish community with grave concerns about individual and community safety. The increase in antisemitism has led us to once again reassess our needs and financial investment in security across our Jewish community. The Jewish Federation, our Synagogues and Agencies are focused on a proactive approach that takes into account our institutions’ diverse interests and organizational missions. We have come together to financially support this initiative, but we need you to help us make sure that our Jewish community is secure and safe.

It is a goal of the Jewish Federation of Greater Portland's Security Intiative to identify and assess any potential threats to our community. It is extremely important to report incidents as soon as you witness them. We are collecting all information that affects our community including Anti-Semitic acts. Please use this form to report all suspicious activity and Anti-Semitic acts. This information will be reviewed and shared with the appropriate local, state and federal law enforcement for action and resolution.

If you SEE something, SAY something and DO something!
Suspicious activities, people and vehicles
Unusual events or incidents 
Dangerous situations 
Suspicious communications (text messages, phone calls, voice mail messages, emails, letters or packages, etc…)


Please note, true emergencies should be reported to police via 911 immediately.


For questions and concerns, feel free to contact Regional Security Director Gene Moss (503) 892-7406
