From 27 February - 1 March, CST is hosting a crowdfunding campaign called ‘Together We Protect’. Jewish people across the UK will visit a campaign website and donate to CST. Each donation will be matched from a special fund which will encourage people to give and see their donations doubled. The objective of the campaign is for everyone – young and old – to come together to support CST. It is our joint responsibility to ensure the security of our Jewish community.
CST’s work allows Jewish people in the UK to live vibrant, safe and secure Jewish lives with confidence. Securing shuls, schools and events - wherever Jews gather together - CST is there to provide reassurance and protection.
Woodside Park shul has always worked in close partnership with CST to create a safe and secure environment for our members. CST has provided funding for security enhancements such as our fencing and electrically operated gates, CCTV, anti-shatter film for our windows and protective clothing for our volunteers. They also provide quality ongoing training for our security volunteers and keep a watchful eye over our community from its 24/7 National Security Control Centre. CST never charges for anything it does and depends on charitable donations to survive.
CST is not ‘just another charity’ but is part of the very fabric of our community and so Woodside Park is delighted to support this campaign.
So, from Saturday evening 27 February, please visit the Together We Protect website, browse to the Woodside Park Synagogue page and give generously. Let’s join together to protect CST, just as they have protected us over many years.
All our team leaders are CST trained and secure our premises during Shabbat, High Holy Day and special events.
If you would like to join us as a team leader and help in maintaining our high security standard or find out more information on CST training then please email our security team.
