Federation Partners with Bond to Offer New Security App for Community
At the Jewish Federation of the Lehigh Valley, we are committed to the safety and security of our community and wanted to bring to your attention a remarkable new service from an emerging New York-based company, Bond (as in “Our Bond”) that we are participating in as part of a pilot program. The Bond founder/CEO is a former deputy chief in the IDF and the engineering team is based in Israel.
In a nut shell:
Bond provides access to trained security agents and state of the art technologies 24/7, all available via its app.
Bond users will be able to utilize the app in any situation in which they may be feel unsafe or unsure.
For instance, when walking alone at night, users may open the live video chat and have an agent available to monitor their whereabouts.
If the situation escalates, they may use the “send me a car” option which allows the security agent to send a car (likely via Uber or Lyft) to transport users to a safe location.
Bond agents can easily connect with local authorities when needed.
The Federation is providing this service to all community members free of charge. To participate, download the Bond app using your mobile phone via this link for the Jewish Federation pilot. *Note: You will be asked for credit card information, but will not be charged.
