Weapons are not permitted on The Jewish Center property, or at facilities rented by The Jewish Center or at events sponsored by The Jewish Center for any purpose.*

Weapons include, but are not limited to, guns, knives or swords with blades over four inches in length, explosives, box cutters, and any chemical whose purpose is to cause harm to another person.

No one will be allowed onto our grounds or into our buildings possessing weapons, regardless of their possession of right-to-carry permit. No one will be permitted into our buildings who refuses an arms check prior to entering if requested.

*Sole Exception: Possession of a weapon can be authorized jointly by the TJC President and Executive Director or their designees to allow hired private security personnel and police to have a weapon on TJC property when this possession is determined necessary for the safety and security of our members and guests. Only the joint authorization from Executive Director and TJC President or their designees may approve the carrying of a weapon onto TJC grounds, as defined above.
