Community Security

As an organization founded to fight anti-Semitism and all forms of hate, the Anti-Defamation League works closely with the Jewish community and other religious and minority communities, helping them be better prepared to thwart hate motivated crime and providing assistance when they are targeted or threatened. In addition to offering community security resources, expertise and training, ADL is able to assist religious and community institutions through: our 27 Regional Offices, positioned on the ground, ready to help; our vast network of law enforcement relationships, which enable us to connect institutions to the appropriate authorities; and our experience and expertise as the most important non-governmental authority in the U.S. on hate crimes, hate groups, extremism, cyberhate, and terrorism.

Protecting Your Jewish Institution

ADL's commitment to Jewish institutional security is a core part of our mission. We have created a comprehensive security manual designed to help Jewish institutions be safe and secure while maintaining an open and welcoming environment.
