The Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School in Rockville, Md., will receive $100,000 from the state to improve security measures because it is a Jewish institution and potentially vulnerable to terrorism.

Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. announced Sept. 21 that the state would provide the money from its federal homeland-security funds, saying that the decision made Maryland “the first state in the nation to allocate money toward protecting Jewish institutions.”

The school, located in a suburb of Washington and serving some 1,500 students in grades K-12 on two campuses, will make both physical improvements and technology upgrades with the money, the governor’s office said.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security granted flexibility in using the money for nongovernmental organizations, such as the school, under certain conditions, according to the governor’s office.
