The CST Britain

Every year CST helps secure over 300 synagogues; over 120 Jewish schools; more than 1000 Jewish communal organisations and buildings; and approximately 1000 communal events. CST also represents the Jewish community on a wide range of Police, governmental and policy-making bodies dealing with security and antisemitism. Indeed, the Police and government praise CST as a model of how a minority community should protect itself.

CST is the only organisation in the country dedicated to collecting, analysing, responding to and publishing statistics relating to antisemitic figures. CST publishes these figures in the Antisemitic Incidents Report annually.

CST statistics, opinion and analysis are also sought by the media, academic bodies, law enforcement and government on all matters relating to antisemitism, terrorism, communal security and policing.

As the threat of terrorism and the physical manifestation of antisemitism –antisemitic incidents – increase, so the work of CST becomes even more essential. CST’s aim is to provide the community with as high a level of security as possible to combat these threats, enabling Jewish community life to be open, proud and strong.
