Safety Updates at FVJN
Thanks to a security grant from Jewish United Fund, we recently installed two outdoor security cameras at FVJN. We are in the midst of making additional security updates to our space, including solar panels to charge the outdoor camera batteries, and the installation of impact resistance security window film over the windows on each exterior door. These security upgrades were both suggested by the Geneva Police Department. The safety of everyone, whenever inside our space in Downtown Geneva, is of utmost importance to us.
