  1. I think as Jewish People, we are starting to see the danger, and the Synagogues need to take security precautions, using camera’s and private security companies, what ever it takes to protect the grounds, and people coming to and from. Anti-Semitism has been on the rise everywhere, and catching the perpetrators, and making an example out of them is what is going to bring the subject to the attention of the citizens! For orthodox, you might want to get a conceal to carry permit for a small gun just in case you all are attacked. We must not rely on others to save our people, only we can do that!
