Jewish Emergency Preparedness Project (JEPP)
Building Resilient Communities
The JEPP was established in March 2021 by a group of lay leaders led by Sherrie Savett. They recognized that after the "Tree of life" massacre in Pittsburg, the flooding and cold weather in Texas and the antisemitic terror in Jersey City, there is a need to prepare the Jewish community for emergency incidents.
Many of the Jewish community have a security plan for their organizations. No organization has an emergency plan and protocol on how to react effectively in the event of an emergency.
By providing educational courses by the best export, we will ensure that the Jewish community will have the best tools to deal with an emergency crisis and build a resilient Jewish community.
