JNS.org – US Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating Anti-Semitism Elan Carr said on Wednesday that Jewish institutions, including synagogues, should have armed security.

“We live in a time of danger,” Carr told Jerusalem Post editor-in-chief Yaakov Katz in an interview at the Global Coalition 4 Israel Conference. “Any synagogue, every JCC should have guards. God willing, may they never be needed, but they should be there.”
