Security Preparedness for Terrorist Acts Against Jewish Museums

To 1) produce two one-day seminars on emergency training conducted by experts in two different regions, 2) provide access to members who need this training, 3) create a manual for member institutions on new practices in safety and emergency preparedness, 4) create an emergency response portal on the CAJM website, and 5) increase field-wide discourse, knowledge, and communication for this ongoing work.  

This project will to facilitate greater security preparedness for terrorist acts and acts of hate that could result in bodily injury or death for patrons or staff, as well as damage to holdings within Jewish museums. The Council of American Jewish Museums recognizes that its many members, which are predominantly small and mid-sized institutions, do not have the expertise to develop strategies to improve disaster preparedness and response or the financial resources to acquire advanced security systems.
