Statement following the attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Like you, Côte Saint-Luc is shocked by the attack on a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania this morning. This attack is a reminder that cities can never be complacent when it comes to the security of our religious institutions. We are fortunate in Côte Saint-Luc to have as partners the Montreal police department, and Federation CJA’s community security office, which organizes, plans and manages security strategies and plans for all institutions and agencies of the Montreal Jewish community.

In the coming days Montreal police will step up patrols around Jewish community institutions as a precaution, as will our own Côte Saint-Luc Public Security patrollers. As always, in the event you witness anything suspicious, call 9-1-1.
