With many American Jews fearing for their safety following the white supremacist-instigated violence in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, and with SeptembersHigh Holidays fast approaching, the Anti-Defamation League provided a security briefingthis week to hundreds of community leaders and security officials at Jewish institutions across the country.

For the Jewish community, security is always a concern, ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said. Theres no reason for alarm in the aftermath of Charlottesville, but we felt it was important for ADL to bring law enforcement and Jewish community institutions together to ensure communities across the country are prepared and safe.

Speakers on the call included representatives from the ADLs Center on Extremism, two FBI executives and the ADLs communal security expert.

Additional briefings will be heldin the lead-up to the Jewish High Holidays, which begin on the evening of September 20, the ADL said. Furthermore, the ADL will be organizing meetings with local law enforcement and community officials throughout the US to assess the post-Charlottesville security situation.

As previouslyreported byThe Algemeiner,questions have been raised over whether police adequately protected Congregation Beth Israel Charlottesvilles only synagogue during the Aug. 12 unrest.
