CREATING A SAFER JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTER
A few months ago, the country was in shock from the horrific terrorist attack that took place in a Jewish synagogue in Pittsburg. Since then, it has come to light that many communities , including the Chicago community, have been re-evaluating our security systems.
One of the places in dire need of proper security is the JCC of West Rogers Park. This is a place where people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome. At this JCC there are family activities and fairs, a large child day care center, a summer camp, services for the elderly and special needs, access to both pool and gym amenities etc. This is a place where we should feel safe to bring families, as an outlet to connect with others or to care for our physical health.
The Chicago JCC is in desperate need of re-evaluating proper security. It is up to us to create change and not wait for an incident to G-d forbid change us. Please help support this cause and help keep our community safe.
It will have more impact to approach the JUF and the JCC (who decide funding and budgeting) with a large support on this issue as opposed to voicing this concern individually. This is why supporting this petition is so important!

Thank you for your time, looking forward to a safer JCC Of West Rogers Park.
