BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — BocaNewsNow.com has confirmed with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office that security personnel from the Temple Beth El “Beck Family Campus” — at Yamato and 441 — called police over a “Muslim” woman on September 27th.
Parents of children who attend preschool at the campus have told BocaNewsNow.com that Temple Beth El officials have not been forthcoming with details of the situation. They state concerns over security at the campus. While the complaints to BocaNewsNow.com are specific, we are not publishing the itemized concerns.
According to PBSO, “Security personnel for the Temple reference a suspicious incident from several weeks ago involving a Muslim woman. Property checks were conducted, nothing suspicious found.”
Sources tell BocaNewsNow.com that the woman in question may have had a criminal background in another state, although this has not been independently verified. We are also not identifying the woman in question, who reportedly spent considerable time parked in the Dunkin Donuts parking lot next to Temple Beth El — observing activity at the Beck Family Campus.
Temples throughout the area — and world — are on high alert during the High Holiday season. Yom Kippur starts tonight at sundown.
