We are deeply distressed and saddened by the breaking news about the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. In light of this morning’s situation, security has already been heightened in the Atlanta community.
Our Secure Community Network (SCN) Alert System continuously monitors security situations and links our Jewish community organizations. It sends accurate security information to the leaders of those organizations and helps ensure that the right people are informed immediately. This is part of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta’s approach to security under the guidance of our Director of Community Wide Security, Cathal J. Lucy. Mr. Lucy is a retired Supervisory Special agent who spent 25 years in the Secret Service on Presidential detail, working with Presidents Clinton and Bush.
Our hearts are with the Pittsburgh community. We will keep you informed.
