The danger of increasing terrorism aimed at Jewish targets and the potential for exposure to unexpected multi-casualty disasters, including natural as well as man-made disasters, require Jewish organizations and communities to prepare for crisis management and the protection of Jewish life and communal lifestyle, the author asserts. He offers basic, concrete, and realistic blueprints on how to prepare for, manage during, and reconstruct after a crisis. He presents organizing principles, as well as a detailed range of specific options that may be adapted by communities and institutions, large and small, according to their needs and capabilities.
