Safety & Security

 

It is important to be aware of our surroundings. Just as the MTA encourages its riders, we agree - if you see something, say something.

 

If there is ever an emergency in the shul, the first call should always be to 911 and Hatzolah (212) 230-1000. In the event that you see something or someone suspicious, and are unsure if there is an issue, alert one of the board members, security committee members (led by Adam Kugelman and Avigayil Zemelman), or one of the gabbaim and they will make sure that someone looks into the situation. We hope that this, in addition to our cooperation with the local police department, will help ensure the safety and security of our shul and its members.

 

 

An Automated External Defribrillator (AED) can be found at the bottom of the steps in the lobby.

 

A First Aid Kit is located in the kitchen on the main level.

Mental Health Resources - Tackling Taboos

As part of our ongoing series on "Smashing Silence and Tackling Taboos", hosted by the Family Life Committee,and Education Committee we have held several events geared toward discussing mental health issues and identifying resources for individuals who need help. We hope to raise awareness of and destigmatize these topics. We hope these resources can be of value to people who are seeking help, and to friends and families who support others whom they care about:
