The past several years have seen a marked rise in Anti-Semitism and hate related events throughout our country. Your Board of the SYVJC is very concerned for our collective safety and security during these times. Towards this end, we have:
  1. Revised and updated all of the Congregation’s liability and risk related policies and coverage.
  2. Assured that we have formal trained security at our major events.
  3. Providing awareness and security training for the entire Congregation so we can support each other in keeping the Santa Ynez Valley a safe and supportive environment for all to worship and gather freely.  
Please attend this important event….all family members are welcome!
