To protect Jewish life and Jewish way of life in New Zealand

The threat of anti-semitism is real in New Zealand. Our dedicated group of volunteers work hard to ensure the safety and security of our friends, family, and fellow congregants. We train regularly to ensure that the service we provide is the very best. Our close working relationship with the New Zealand Police ensures that any incidents are dealt with promptly.


The Community Security Group was founded in 1990. Unfortunatley an incident was the impetus for forming the group: a mentally ill woman stabbed six young students at a Jewish school in central Auckland. Such an extreme incident highlighted the vulnerability of our small community. There have been many changes to the group over the years. The mission (see above) has not changed.
