Security Increased at Synagogues for Holiday

Synagogues around the New York metro area are preparing for Rosh Hashanah -- the Jewish New Year - which begins at sundown Wednesday -- and the next 10 day period of reflection that ends with Yom Kippur. However, part of the preparations are discussions with law enforcement about security at houses or worship -- during high profile holidays.

Nassau County Police will hold a news conference Wednesday at the Congregation Young Israel in Hewlett today to explain security measures being taken around the county.

Rabbi Heshy Blumstein says the meeting today will also be a chance to thank police for the work they do. The rabbi says is congregation has 180 families and they hold extra services to accomodate everyone on Rosh Hashanah.
