In recent weeks, many Jewish communities across North America have received threats. On Thursday, March 9, the Rady JCC received an email threat at approximately 5:30 pm. The Asper Jewish Community Campus immediately set emergency procedures into action. The campus was evacuated in a quick and orderly fashion. The Winnipeg Police Service was called and arrived within minutes.
The police determined there was no threat. Police gave the all clear to return to the building at 7:41 pm. The Campus is now open and has resumed normal operations.
We thank the Winnipeg Police Service for their quick response.
The safety and security of our community is paramount. We are pleased that our emergency procedures were effective.
