Chabad houses, yeshivas, organizational headquarters and even a mikveh in the New York area are among the beneficiaries of $9.7 million in funds allocated by the Department of Homeland Security for Jewish organizations and facilities considered vulnerable to terrorist attacks.

That sum is 97 percent of the $10 million budgeted in the nonprofit Security Grant Program, one of several programs intended to improve so-called soft targets. The funds are a substantial reduction from last year’s $19 million for the program.
