Texas Synagogue Held Secret Services to Protect Congregation From Possible Hate Crimes

In September 2017 an unnamed Jewish congregation in Texas decided to hide their services for High Holy Days due to widespread neo-Nazi demonstrations in the United States. They outlined the details of their safety measures in documents intended for the congregation. The degree of safety measures taken in this case reflect the terror and potential for harm to their members based on their religion and ethnicity.
