Security In Jewish Community Tightens After Attack

| June 11, 2009

BALTIMORE — An attack at the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C., is causing local synagogues, Jewish schools, and community and cultural centers to tighten security and others to question how these things happen.

Art Abramson, director of the Baltimore Jewish Council, said he heard about the Holocaust Museum shooting from Baltimore city police.

Abramson said police called to alert him that patrols would be stepped up in Jewish communities to deter copycat crimes. Park Heights Avenue, which runs through the heart of Baltimore's Jewish community, is under close watch.

"Baltimore city, county have always been protective when the situation arises. When we need them, they're there," Abramson said.
