Even More Bomb Threats
A new wave of threats hits Jewish Centers in Chicago, Florida and New York.
This week, more Jewish Community Centers have received bomb threats. This has been happening since January, and the threats have taken place in schools in at least seven states.
"This is not 'normal,'" Jonathan Greenblatt, the CEO of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement. "We will not be deterred or intimidated."
The threats have reportedly been received by phone calls and emails. Most schools have been immediately evacuated or classes have been canceled.
Thankfully no bombs have been found on the campuses, but the Senate has sent a letter to the Trump administration for help in dealing with these threats. More than 100 threats have occurred already this year.
It’s also been reported that Jewish cemeteries have been vandalized in recent weeks.
