Bomb Threats On Jewish Schools, Community Centers Reported In 12 States

Bomb Threats On Jewish Schools Community Centers Reported In 12 StatesAt least 20 Jewish community centers and day schools across the U.S. reported receiving bomb threats Monday, the latest in a recent uptick of anti-Semitic acts. The threats extended across 12 states, including Maryland, Indiana, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Michigan, Alabama, and Rhode Island, NBC News reported. The latest wave of threats comes just a day after dozens of headstones at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia were toppled, the second time a Jewish cemetery has been vandalized this month. Since the beginning of 2017, there have been 89 bomb threats at 72 Jewish community centers and schools in the U.S. and Canada. The FBI and the Department of Justice have launched investigations, and President Trump has promised this “horrible” anti-Semitism is “going to stop.”
