Protect Our Community

Antisemitic threats are on the rise.

JewishColumbus is the central security hub for the rest of the local Jewish community. Our team works diligently with local and national law enforcement partners to monitor threats and aid in crisis response. The relationships JewishColumbus fosters with national organizations, like the Secure Community Network arm of the Jewish Federations of North America, and local organizations, like Ohio Jewish Communities (OJC), are critical to security, enabling funding through fundraising, lobbying and grants. 

Thanks to the donations we receive to our Annual Campaign, JewishColumbus provides more than $1 million in funding every year to mitigate risk in our community. These funds go to special duty officers who patrol:

  • Preschools
  • Day schools
  • Religious schools
  • Synagogues

JewishColumbus also works with local organizations to coordinate security training that entails both threat assessments and tailored security protocols unique to each building. Give to our Annual Campaign today to support the safety and security of our Columbus Jewish community.
