The CSG exists “to protect Jewish life and Jewish way of life”. This encompasses our community’s traditions and culture and the ability to continue to live a proud vibrant Jewish life. Over the past 12 months CSG Vic has given security advice and helped protect 62 synagogues, 27 school campuses, 24 community organisation buildings.
With this in mind, CSG provides guidance and helps empower the community with an understanding of what they need to do to protect themselves. It helps strike the balance between being safe and feeling secure with enjoying a lifestyle with free Jewish expression.
