The Jewish Federation of Greater Dallas is actively monitoring the situation at Congregation Beth Israel in Colleyville where a gunman has taken hostages. The Federation's Community Security Initiative has been working with local police and FBI from the start of the incident, offering assistance and support. The Federation also immediately notified synagogues, Jewish organizations, and agencies within the Dallas-Fort Worth area, calling for them to activate security protocols. We continue to be in constant contact with the FBI and law enforcement personnel. We continue to pray for those currently held at Congregation Beth Israel, their families, and all congregants. We fervently hope this situation will end quickly and peaceably for all involved.
