Our mission


Is to create a culture of Security within the Edmonton Jewish community. We will accomplish this through communication, awareness, training and routine exercises. Our efforts will standardize a security program throughout the community.


What we do 


The Jewish Federation of Edmonton has joined the National Community Security Program Initiative, the only national Jewish security apparatus under the auspices of The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, to develop a plan to make our community safer and to ensure the Edmonton Jewish community is prepared, in a proactive manner, to handle security issues within our community.

The Community Security Program (Edmonton), staffed by a full-time Director of Security, Tal Toubiana, is charged with convening, preparing and equipping Jewish organizations with the information and trainings needed to be secure. The Director of Community Security will focus on four priorities:


  • Implementing a community-wide communications platform to ensure timely critical responses to security incidents.
  • Developing, convening and implementing a continuous training plan to ensure the safety and readiness of Jewish organizations.
  • Assessing and providing recommendations to Jewish organizations about best practices related to their physical spaces including potential improvements to be more secure.
  • Working to commissary security needs to reduce cost and/or increase quality of hired security personnel and equipment.


The Jewish Federation of Edmonton offers ongoing training for Jewish organizations and groups throughout Edmonton. Contact Tal Toubiana, Federation's Chief of Security to register for upcoming training, book a vulnerability assessment or consult.
