Several Christian evangelical ministries in the southern state of Alabama are attempting to raise $100,000 for a Jewish community center’s (JCC) security, after the organization has reportedly received four bomb threats since the beginning of this year.
The founder of the Scott Dawson Evangelistic Association, Scott Dawson told AL.com, “I want to help in whatever way I can” when it comes to making sure that the JCC gets the protection they need. Even adding that,” It seems like the right thing to do. I think we can raise $100,000. I’m trying to get pastors to take up offering to help them.”
To help raise awareness and money, other ministries involved include The Center for Executive Leadership, Young Business Leaders, Lifework Leadership, JH Ranch, Alliance Ministries and the National Christian Foundation of Alabama.
Outside of that, multiple churches in the Birmingham, Alabama area have pledged contributions of $5,000 to $10,000 to the security system costs that are estimated to be about $1 million in total.
This is not the first time the community has come together to showcase their support for the JCC.
Last month, Christian pastors gathered with local residents in front of the center to show their solidarity with both the Muslim and Jewish community. The event was titled: Rally of Solidarity.
If you are interested in contributing to the cost of the security system, the National Christian Foundation of Alabama is accepting tax deductible donations designated for “JCC-SECURITY.”
