A Chabad girls’ school in Brooklyn has installed bullet-resistant classroom doors to keep out shooters.
Bnos Menachem in the Crown Heights neighborhood is the first of more than 50 Jewish schools and synagogues in Brooklyn to have the 150-pound metal doors installed by an Israel-based manufacturer, the New York Post reported Saturday.
The doors cost $2,500. The school was able to secure about $150,000 in a state Homeland Security grant, the Post reported, citing the manufacturer, Remo Security Doors.
The installation at Bnos Menachem started last week.
Remo’s president, Omer Barnes, said a bullet may penetrate the door, but a shooter could not get in.
“No weapon will open the door,” he told the Post.
