The troubling wave of anti-Semitic attacks across the U.S. continued Monday when at least 29 Jewish community centers and schools received bomb threats, prompting evacuations. A Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia was also vandalized. This is the second attack against a Jewish cemetery in the past week.

Also this week in Israel in the News:

  • A week after ISIS-affiliated terrorists reportedly fired rockets into Israel from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, a rocket was fired from Gaza into southern Israel. Israel is holding Hamas, Gaza’s governing body, responsible.
  • The Fellowship is partnering with the World Jewish Congress to fund a series of security measures to protect the Jewish community in Nice, France, where 86 people were killed and hundreds injured in a truck ramming attack last year.
  • Iran continued to test-fire new missile technologies during annual military exercises this week, despite the reinstatement of some sanctions by the U.S. against the Iranian government.

This week’s Israel in the News Perspective features The Fellowship‘s Yael Eckstein on standing against anti-Semitic attacks and hatred.
