Security Upgrades Planned at Temples

| July 29, 2011

As the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks approaches, local synagogues are seeking to upgrade security on their property by installing surveillance cameras.

The BACH Jewish Center, at 210 Edwards Blvd. in Long Beach, is finalizing a plan to install the cameras on its grounds. The center recently received funding from the Homeland Security Grant Program, which was made available to Jewish institutions following 9/11, to improve security, said Rabbi Eli Goodman, the Jewish center’s education and outreach director.

“A lot of Jewish institutions and temples are getting these things,” Goodman said, adding that some synagogues outside the area, such as in Riverdale in the Bronx, have been the targets of threats.
