ACT 235 SECURITY TRAINING
Training 20 Key Jewish Community Members
ACT 235 Security Training
Find 10 men (or women) to participate in the first ever Jewish Act 235 class. To work armed security in PA, you need to be certified "Act 235" by a school sanctioned by the PA State Police. The state mandates a 40 hour course which means all schools conduct this on two Saturdays and two Sundays. If we can get 10 attendees, the school would put on a 4 weekday and two Sunday class to fill the 40 hour requirement. If anyone is interested in signing up please use the link here:

Training Key Jewish Community Members
We define "Key jewish community members" as people who are always embedded in the community spaces such as synagogues, and train them to be ready to respond to emergencies. We want to start with 20 recipients and get them signed onto 10 sessions, an hour each. They can also put the credit towards joining group certification classes such as Red Cross First Aid/ AED, USCCA, etc. The financial breakdown is simple: each session is $100.
