Partnership for Safer Synagogues Initiative
Anshe Emet Synagogue is recognized as a Safer Synagogue by Jewish Child & Family Services. Participating in the Partnership for Safer Synagogues initiative, our congregational leadership was trained on a number of topics that can adversely impact women, men, children and families, including child abuse, intimate partner violence, elder abuse, and addiction. We have a greater understanding of the impact of abuse across the lifespan, have developed policies and protocols to make our congregation as safe a space as possible, and have improved access to support for congregants experiencing abusive situations, all with the hope of perpetuating healthy, peaceful Jewish homes, families and relationships. For more information, please contact any of our clergy or our JCFS Liaison, Ann Luban at [email protected]/847-745-5420.
