Project Spotlight: Emergency Security Aid to French Jews

In the wake of the deadly ISIS terror attacks in Paris last month, The Fellowship has launched a new emergency security program for the French-Jewish communities in France. In addition, we have renewed our offer to help French Jews make aliyah (immigrate to Israel).

The Fellowship is providing funding of more than $86,000 to 25 synagogues and Chabad Jewish schools to beef up security measures, such as adding security guards and installing building security systems. The Fellowship is also considering other steps to improve security for the entire French-Jewish community.

The Fellowship has allocated more than $1 million in security support to Chabad institutions worldwide in recent years following previous terrorist attacks, including the vicious series of coordinated shootings and bombing attacks in Mumbai, India, in November 2008.
