ADL praises authorities for foiling plot to attack nyc synagogues

The Jewish Federations of North America reacts to the foiled terror plot against Jewish Institutions in NYC

In response to reports of a thwarted terror plot against synagogues in New York City two days after al Qaida in Yemen called for intensified attacks on Jewish targets, the President CEO of The Jewish Federations of North America Jerry Silverman released the following statement:

“We are disturbed by the news reports of a homegrown terror plot aimed at Jewish communal institutions in New York City. We deeply appreciate the NYPD and intelligence agencies’ vigilance against such threats to our community, which are sadly all too common. Especially in the wake of Osama bin Laden’s death, we are actively engaging the Federation Movement across North America to help communities be prepared, alert and secure against the heightened threat. Events such as these underscore the critical role of The Jewish Federations’ Secure Community Network, which works with law enforcement agencies and Jewish communities to provide training, communicate news and alerts, and support organizations to create more secure environments.”
