Baltimore, MD - Mar. 8, 2017 - As we are all aware, since the beginning of this year there have been multiple threats made to JCCs and other Jewish institutions in Maryland and throughout  the United States. We are fortunate to have the Baltimore Sheriff's, Baltimore Police Department (BPD) and other State and Federal law enforcement agencies actively pursuing the perpetrators of these hateful crimes.

At my urging, and in the spirit of being proactive, I have been able to secure the Sheriff's to utilize their highly trained bomb detection K-9 team to begin to inspect institutions in our district that could be targets of these threats.  I am taking these threats seriously and will do everything in my power to make sure our communities and institutions remain safe and secure.

Should you have any questions about this initiative please do not hesitate to reach out to me at or 410-396-4819.
