HaGaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky says that Americans can carry guns to the synagogue on the Sabbath day to defend themselves.

Yeshiva World News reports that the issue was specifically focused on the presence of armed guards in synagogues, due to an increase in anti-Semitic incidents.

Harav Chaim spoke out against the detachment of guards, but said that the faithful could carry firearms to the synagogue if the aim was to save lives.

The question was followed by asking whether it is permissible to carry firearms at the synagogue even if a threat against the faithful is only potential, rather than immediate. Harav Chaim said it was allowed.

On October 27, 2018, an attacker killed 11 innocent people at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. There was no armed security at the synagogue at the time of the attack.

On April 27, 2019, an attacker killed an innocent man and injured three others by opening fire on Chabad of Poway in San Diego, California.

On December 29, 2019, the New York Times reported that a machete-attacker injured five Hasidic Jews in the home of a rabbi. The victims tried to defend themselves by throwing furniture on the attacker.
