Jewish Schools and Centers in US Hit by Fresh Wave of Bomb Threats

Stand for Israel has kept you updated on the alarming rash of anti-Semitic threats and attacks facing Jewish institutions across the United States. This morning, The Times of Israel reports, a new wave of bomb threats were called into Jewish schools and centers around the country:

Jewish community centers in the eastern and midwestern US were targeted with bomb threats Monday, the latest in a series of incidents that has raised fears of anti-Semitism in the country.

Threats were called in to JCCs in Asheville, North Carolina; Birmingham, Alabama; York and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania; Tarrytown and Staten Island, New York; Indianapolis, Indiana; Cherry Hill, New Jersey; and Wilmington, Delaware.

Jewish day schools in Rockville, Maryland, and Fairfax, Virginia, both outside Washington, DC; and Davie, Florida, outside Miami, were also evacuated.

Those inside the buildings were evacuated and law enforcement was called in to investigate the threats. All clears were given in a number of cases.

The director of the Birmingham JCC, which has been targeted three times in the past two months, told local media the threats were “very difficult, very challenging, very fearful...”

As America witnesses this increase in anti-Semitic crimes, please stand with us and sign our statement of solidarity against hate.
