The Jewish community of Central New York 

is shocked and saddened by the horrific attack on the Jewish community of Pittsburgh. 

Our prayers go out to the victims, their families and the members of their community. 

Please know that all our local, state and federal law enforcement agencies

have been made aware of our concerns for the 

safety and security of our Jewish community. 

We have been coordinating our efforts 

to assure additional property checks will be made at synagogues, the JCC and 

other Jewish Institutions

They are not aware of any threats to our community but again request that

if you see or hear anything that appears suspicious or threatening, call 911.
