AJ has taken steps to increase security in and around the building.  Please be aware of two important changes:

1. All doors are now LOCKED AT ALL TIMES, including minyan.  Please use the doorbell to enter the building.

2. THE WOODBOURNE AVENUE DOORS ARE NOW “EXIT-ONLY” DOORS.

We have taken additional security measures including adding more security officers, upgrading security monitoring equipment, and more.  These non-budgeted expenses are increasing quickly.  We are asking for your help in offsetting these costs.  We have added a new AJ Security Fund to serve as a collection point for these donations. To make a contribution online, please visit: www.adathjeshurun.com/donate or you may send a check to the AJ office with a note stating that the contribution is for the  “Security Fund.”

Thank you for your support and understanding as we take steps to keep you safe.


KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE

Carbon monoxide detectors are available in the synagogue office for $10.60 each. To obtain one, stop by the office during business hours. Please bring exact change, a check payable to AJ, or a credit card.
 
We thank the Phyllis & Michael Shaiikun Tikkun Olam Fund for subsidizing the cost of the detectors!
