Czech Republic: Security at Jewish Sites in Prague to Be Increased Amid Terror Concerns

Via Haaretz:
Security at Jewish sites in Prague and across the Czech Republic will be tightened due to increased terror concerns.

On Tuesday, Czech officials and Jewish groups signed a memorandum on cooperation on security issues. The Jewish groups — the Federation of the Jewish Communities in the Czech Republic along with the Chabad center and the Jewish Museum in Prague — agreed to form a security council that will be responsible for communication with the police and providing information to the authorities about potential threats. The council will also propose measures to make Jewish sites safer.

“The agreement should establish a more effective communication channel between Jewish organizations and the security forces,” Tomas Kraus, the Jewish federation’s executive director, told JTA. “It’s high time we start talking about more security measures to address the situation.”

No details on funding for the measures have been released.
