In the early morning of June 8th there was a break in at TBH. A man broke into the kitchen with a crowbar, then entered the sanctuary. At this point the alarm went off. The man went to the alarm panel, broke it off the wall and smashed it in the parking lot. Then he left. Thankfully there was nothing stolen, and the damage has since been repaired. We have a new alarm panel, and Michelle has been issuing new alarm codes to those who need them. A police report has been filed, and although we have the man on video, his face is not visible. This appears to have been a crime of opportunity, and I don’t believe we were targeted. It’s good to know that all systems functioned as intended, and I hope they won’t be tested in future.
If I am not for myself, who will be for me?
If I am not for others, what am I?
And if not now, when? -Rabbi Hillel
