Los Angeles City Councilman Paul Koretz, 5th District, hosted a meeting on Sept. 1 between the Los Angeles Police Department and local Jewish leaders and community members regarding security during Jewish High Holy Days.
The gathering at the Museum of Tolerance brought together rabbis and Jewish leadership from throughout the city. The LAPD provided information on plans to protect the community including additional deployments around Jewish temples and institutions. Tips for security and reporting were also provided.
The gathering included Koretz, Los Angeles City Controller Ron Galperin and Simon Wiesenthal Center Rabbi Abraham Cooper, as well as members of the LAPD’s command staff including Deputy Chiefs Blake Chow and Alan Hamilton. Officials stressed the need to continue partnering with the community throughout the High Holy Days – which continue through Yom Kippur on Sept. 16 – and after the holidays conclude.
Prior to the program, Koretz presented LAPD leaders, Cooper and Museum of Tolerance Director Liebe Geft with commendations from the city of Los Angeles. For information, visit councilmemberpaulkoretz.com.
