Major Jewish Organization, Israeli Firm Partner to Develop Global Antisemitism Alert System
JNS.org – A new Israeli-developed global alert system has been acquired by the the World Jewish Congress (WJC) that will enable Jewish communities around the world to quickly, easily converse with each other and law enforcement, in the event of an antisemitic or terrorist attack.
The software system, a project of the firm NowForce, is a cloud-based dispatch system that will enhance communication abilities and reduce the response time of local authorities and security forces. The system will include a mobile application for citizens in distress to report incidents as they occur.
“The World Jewish Congress is committed to ensuring the security of Jews everywhere, and will not rest until our communities are better prepared and equipped to protect and defend themselves against any and every threat,” said WJC President Ronald Lauder.
According to the WJC, the system will be gradually introduced in global Jewish communities during a 10-year period.
“We look forward to working closely with WJC in implementing a rapid and successful roll-out of the system and to its becoming a key resource for Jewish communities throughout the world,” NowForce CEO Assaf Shafran said.
