FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
warns B’nai Brith Canada in security alert to community
“Warnings of possible hostile attacks against Jewish community targets demand your attention as a matter of top priority,” said Frank Dimant, B’nai Brith Canada’s Executive Vice President, in a security alert that went out across the country to synagogues, communal institutions, and Jewish individuals.
“Security monitoring groups are reporting increased Internet chatter that point to targets across the United States, as well as in Canada.
“Following extensive, ongoing consultation with security experts, B’nai Brith Canada advises all Jewish community institutions to ensure that proper security measures are in place at all times. The organization urges persons to report suspicious activity to its Anti-Hate Hotline, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-800-892-2624.
“B'nai Brith will continue working with all major policing, national security and safety bodies to help ensure the security of the community.”
B’nai Brith Canada has been active in Canada since 1875
as the Jewish community’s foremost human rights agency
Security Alert - 06/20/08
While officials agree that there is no specific threat at present, B'nai Brith Canada has warned that it is crucial that continued vigilance be maintained given the established presence of Hezbollah in our midst. In a community alert, which the organization releases when the circumstances demand, institutions across the Jewish community were reminded that given the ongoing nature of the threat of terrorist attacks here in Canada, it was essential that security protocols be reviewed and that vigilance be maintained as a top priority. Equally imperative was the need to inform members of the Jewish community of the ongoing need to be "aware and prepared" and the availability of community resources including the 24 hour/7 day a week hotline run by B'nai Brith Canada where suspicious behaviour should be reported promptly (1-800-892-2624).
B'nai Brith continues to meet with federal and provincial politicians and law enforcement officials to ensure the highest priority for the community's needs. Frank Dimant, Executive Vice-President of B'nai Brith Canada and recent appointee to the Federal Government's cross-cultural round table on security, will raise Jewish community security concerns this weekend with the Honourable Stockwell Day, Minster of Public Safety as a top priority.
