More than 10 Jewish community centers in the United States received bomb threats on Monday, which is the fourth round of threats in the last five weeks.
The threats have been called in to JCCs across the country, according to Paul Goldenberg, the director of Secure Community Network — an affiliate of the Jewish Federations of North America that advises Jewish groups and institutions on security.
News reports indicated that threats were received by JCCs in St. Paul, Minnesota; Houston, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Birmingham, Alabama.
“It appears to be the same serial caller” as in the prior incidents, Goldenberg told JTA.
“The JCCs are very well equipped to handle this,” he said.
