STL Jewish Light: St. Louis rabbi turns to Twitter to address the many costs of security at Jewish institutions

Following the most recent example of an attack on a Jewish institution, communities across the United States once again find themselves on edge. The terrorist hostage situation inside Congregation Beth Israel on Saturday may have reminded many Jews in St. Louis of an incident that occurred just three months ago when St. Louis police arrested a man who threaten to blow up Central Reform Congregation.

That attack in Texas reminded many of the questions Jewish congregations and their leaders must ask regarding their own safety.

One St. Louis rabbi, Rabbi Daniel Bogard of CRC, used his own personal Twitter account on Monday, to personally speak out on these issues and the real-life costs Jewish institutions face every day in the name of security.
