(NEWS) Toronto Synagogues Get Funding Against Hate Crimes

"Five Toronto synagogues and a Jewish day school are the latest beneficiaries of Canadian government money to guard against hate crimes.

The Jewish facilities will share some $90,000 to defray the cost of security measures such as surveillance cameras, lighting, alarm and intercom systems, gates and fences, and related training.

The cash is part of the federal government's $3 million, three-year Communities at Risk: Security Infrastructure Pilot (SIP) Program established in 2007 to help minority groups combat hate crimes. A condition of the grant is that recipients match the amount, either dollar-for-dollar or with services in kind."
