Warning: Suspicious Person visiting Shuls!


SCN (Secure Community Network - The Official Homeland Security Initiative for the American Jewish Community) is warning Jewish synagogues and schools to be on the lookout for a very suspicious man who is visiting synagogues across the nation. 
He was spotted at several synagogues in Philadelphia including one in Elkins Park, PA, a suburb of Philadelphia. Over the past two days he has been seen in Northern NJ, most recently this morning in Englewood.

If you encounter this individual or observe his vehicle, please notify the local Teaneck police immediately, then notify Adam Hirsch at 917-337-4230 or ajhirsch@gmail.com

Background
It has recently been reported that an Asian male is currently crossing the country, visiting Jewish organizations. He has apparently visited Jewish Montessori schools, JCCs and synagogues in Michigan, Ohio, Illinois and possibly other states. At some institutions, he has interacted with staff members, at other locations he has walked up to the building and filmed the buildings (or portions thereof). Much of what this individual has posted on the Internet is somewhat innocuous; however, some rhetoric has been rather inflammatory, bordering on disturbing or even threatening. Law Enforcement entities have been alerted to this situation and are taking appropriate action.

We are asking all Jewish institutions to be on the lookout for this individual. If he is seen around your facility, please do not approach him, notify your local police department about his presence and refer to this notice. Please also immediately notify SCN.
This individual can be described as:
Medium height, 135 lbs
Approximately 50 years old
Light skinned - possibly Asian descent
Gray/black hair
Wispy beard/mustache

VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

The individual was driving a late model dark blue sedan, California license plate 7PUC437,
The vehicle has several paragraphs of white writing wrapped around it (photo below). The entire rear bumper of the vehicle is emblazoned with "Targeted Individual"
Again, if you encounter this individual, or observe his vehicle, If you encounter this individual or observe his vehicle, please notify the local Teaneck police immediately, then notify Adam Hirsch at 917-337-4230 or ajhirsch@gmail.com
If at all possible, avoid personal contact with this individual. He may be suffering from some mental issues, and his behavior may be unpredictable. If he approaches you first, be pleasant in your conversation with him, but end the conversation as soon as possible, and notify the local police as possible.
