48 Jewish Community Centers Received Bomb Threats

The coordinated threats started on the East Coast and spread west two weeks ago, culminating in the evacuation of 14 centers on Tuesday. U.S. Jews insist the threats should not be dismissed just because no bombs have been found.
57 bomb threats to 48 Jewish centers around the United States were made throughout the month of January. The coordinated threats, often targeting multiple organizations in the same hour, started on the East Coast and spread to westward two weeks ago, culminating in the evacuation of 14 Jewish community centers on Tuesday.
After each wave of threats, evacuations and the “all clear” from the police, the community centers resume activity, leading some to dismiss the bomb threats as merely a hoax. And yet, while no bombs were found at any of the JCCs, those who regularly attend the schools, community centers, and day cares that are evacuated are shaken and fearful after each set of calls directed at the Jewish community.
