In 2019 there were 2,100 acts of antisemitic hate crimes, including a 56 percent increase in assaults and five fatalities according to the ADL. We are committed to helping keep our community safe and secure through increased training, and the hardening of our institutions.
Keeping Our Community Safe and Secure Security Grant is in response to a rise in anti-Semitism in the United States and across the Jewish world. Jewish Federation & Jewish Foundation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee agreed to fund a range of physical security enhancements through the Jewish community of Nashville. This funding is being used for the enhancement of cameras, alarms, communication alert systems, fencing and other like security needs for the sake of the overall protection of the community.
