Newark, NJ – Acting Essex County Prosecutor Theodore N.

“Considering the attack on a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas just two weeks ago and the overall rise is anti-Semitic crimes, we believe this is an important time to address the community,” said Prosecutor Stephens.
Members of the ECPO, the New Jersey Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, and the Anti-Defamation League will discuss safety measures that can be used to protect houses of worship, prosecuting bias crimes, grants available to provide increased security and other relevant issues. There will also be a period for questions and answers.
