Updated Security Information

Published Thursday, May 23, 2019

As we do with regularity here at Shalom Park, we review our Security practices, protocols, and facilities to ensure that we are making necessary enhancements.

As a result of this most recent security review, we will enhance our existing security by limiting the entry doors to Shalom Park. This will result in the permanent change to the Portico (Blumenthal) building entrance.

Beginning June 1, 2019, members will no longer have access to enter the building through the Portico (Blumenthal) entrance.  Members must use the main (rotunda) entrance for all Levine JCC programs and events.   

In addition, a guarded security podium will be placed in the hallway of the main building entrance and Shalom Park Security reserves the right to check bags and packages that are brought onto Shalom Park.  

These changes are as a direct result of the expert guidance and recommendation of our security and law enforcement partners. 

Without question, we are prioritizing safe and controlled access to our LJCC over convenience. We acknowledge that this transition could result in inconvenience or a change in your current routine.  We apologize for that inconvenience, but remain committed to following the recommendations provided to us from experts in the security field.

We look forward to helping you to readjust your entry paths to the building, through the main (rotunda) entrance.

We appreciate the support of our entire membership as we work to provide a safe JCC experience.  It is our privilege to serve your families, and we continue to welcome your respectful feedback.
