High Holidays 5780/2019 Community Safety Reflections

Solidarity Forever! And Happy New Year! art by Ricardo Levins Morales

Reflections on safety + security after coordinating with Kavod high holiday safety teams as alternatives to hiring police + private security:

36 safety team members (Jews and non-Jewish allies), 18 shifts, 8 services for hundreds of people across 2 communities (Kavod and Nehar Shalom Community Synagogue), 4 safety prep calls, 2 safety plans and dozens of learnings…building the world we want to live in is a GRIND, it’s exhausting and daunting AND is a moving and powerful experience that builds our capacity to keep each other safe, fight white nationalism/white supremacy and counter state…
