Temple Israel of Natick has been awarded $100,000 in federal funds aimed at helping it secure its location and operations.
According to the state, which doles out the funds on behalf of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency, “Each grant supports target hardening and other physical security enhancements at sites determined to be at high risk of a terrorist attack.”
Overall, the state distributed $1.6M in grants to 18 organizations. Many of the grants went to temples and chabads in light of anti-Semitic hate crimes that have taken place around the country and world.
