BeAware Security Training

April 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Shaare Torah logo community, tradition, kindness

Over the past five months the Safety & Security Committee has been actively working with our Federal, State, and local partners to strengthen the safety and security of Shaare Torah. You may have noticed a more visible safety and security presence during the high holidays or modifications to our Shabbat service procedures. While we have not received any specific threats to our synagogue community, we are working with our partners to implement best practices and lessons learned in order to maintain a safe and secure environment for all.

An important aspect of our safety and security planning involves training of our Shaare Torah community. Leading up to the high holidays we conducted training for the board, service leaders and greeters as well as those who volunteered to serve on the “Red Lanyard” Safety & Security Team. As we move into 2023, we would like to expand these training opportunities to all members of the Shaare Torah community.

In partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the Secure Community Network, we are offering the following courses to the Shaare Torah community:

BeAware – Introduction to Situational Awareness Training 

  • BeAware is available to all members of the Shaare Torah community; no background in security is required. The course is designed to improve the ability of all members of the Shaare Torah community to recognize and react to dangerous situations in their everyday lives. We will also discuss “The Power of Hello” – techniques for engagement and de-escalation to help address and defuse potentially dangerous situations.
  • The training will be provided by the Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the Secure Community Network.
  • Date/Time: Wednesday, April 19, 2023 at 7:00pm
  • Duration: 90 minutes
  • Cost: Free
  • Location: Shaare Torah – All Purpose Room
