FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge Visits Lakewood [PHOTO]

Coming on the heels of two recent credible threats to the Jewish community in the Tri-state area, the National Chaplains Association (NCA) sat down this morning with Michael A. Ratta, Assistant Special Agent in Charge FBI Newark, as well as other long standing law enforcement partners.

At the meeting, which took place at the NCA headquarters, Chaplain Yisroel Bursztyn thanked the FBI, which had been in contact with the NCA from the minute the New Jersey synagogue threat was first publicized, constantly updating and keeping them informed as the situation developed.

“The FBI and the NCA have been working together for many years toward a common goal – the safety and protection of everyone and everywhere,” Chaplain Yisroel Bursztyn said in a statement.

“These recent incidents, which thank G-d ended peacefully, once again demonstrate the necessity of a faith-based relationship that the NCA maintains with the multiple law enforcement agencies on a local, state and national level,” Chaplain Yaakov Wenger, who cofounded the NCA along with Chaplain Bursztyn, added.

Also in attendance at Monday’s meeting were Ocean County Sheriff Michael Mastronardy and Lakewood Police Chief Greg Meyer who reiterated the importance of all agencies working together in order to swiftly respond to any potential security threat.

  1. We thank the fbi for their hard work. But we also want accountability for their partisan actions in Washington and elsewhere where they abused their oath in politicizing their office and spying and raiding DJT.

  2. Thank you very much to the FBI, NCA, Ocean County Sheriff and the Lakewood Police Chief.
    We truly appreciate what you are doing for our community, for Lakewood and for the whole Ocean County.
    Thank you
    And of course Thank You Hashem.
    Hashem appointed you as his personal wonderful messengers.

  3. I’m going to enlarge this picture and hang it in my sukkah, then I’ll make a wallet size picture in case I’m arrested by the feds, they’ll be nice to me im sure of it.
