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 concernsabout individual and community safety. The increase in antisemitismhas led us to once again reassess our needs and financial investment in security across our Jewish community. The Jewish Federation, ourSynagogues and Agencies are focused on a proactive approach thattakes into account our institutions’ diverse interests and organizationalmissions. We have come together to financially support this initiative,but we need you to help us make sure that our Jewish community issecure 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
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.
