World Jews on High Alert Ahead of Pesach

| |

The Counter-Terrorism Bureau has instructed Chabad centers and Jewish communities in several sensitive countries to boost security and go as far as hiring local security companies to guard the mass Passover Seders planned during the Jewish holiday.

In some countries there are even preparations to have hikers conduct security checks at the entrance to Passover Seders in order to verify the identity of the participants and prevent the infiltration of a hostile element.

The Counter-Terrorism Bureau stressed that there was no concrete warning in regards to terror organizations’ plan to target specific Seders, but that precautions had to be taken in places where there was a large concentration of Israelis.
