Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Police have increased patrols around some Ohio jewish organizations in light of the deadly shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial and Museum in Washington.

At the Maltz Museum of jewish heritage outside Cleveland, executive director Judi Feniger says local Beachwood police are being extra vigilant.

A man authorities describe as an 88-year-old white supremacist is accused of killing a guard at the Washington Museum on Wednesday.

The Columbus Jewish Federation says police are keeping a closer watch and have advised the group to increase its own security.

Federation president Marsha Hurwitz says the violence is disturbing to holocaust survivors in Ohio and is a reminder of the importance of teaching tolerance.
