Annapolis Police Investigating Bomb Threat At Jewish Day School

Annapolis Police Investigating Bomb Threat At Jewish Day School

Merage Jewish Community Center of Orange County.

Mo Goldman, a Tucson immigration attorney, posted on his Facebook page at about 7:15 p.m. that, after people at the center sheltered in place, "All is clear at Tucson JCC and we are free to leave".

Mercer Island police said employees at the JCC made the decision to evacuate.

US President Donald Trump reportedly said that a wave of threats against Jewish communal institutions may be a false flag.

The Levite Jewish Community Center in Birmingham received a bomb threat on Monday morning marking the third time such a situation has occurred this year.

"The president continues to be deeply disappointed and concerned by the reports of further vandalism at Jewish cemeteries", White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said. The suspect reportedly said the bomb would explode in two hours, but the threat was not specific to the Bernikow center, and police responded to all three JCC locations.

Police say officers and K-9 units checked the building and did not find any such devices.

Shakur did and then released his 1996 double album " All Eyez on Me " - his biggest release and the last before his death. The vehicle was reportedly auctioned off not long after the shooting, and has changed hands a number of times since then.

It's just the latest round of threats to Jewish community centers across the country since January.

The threat was received at 4:19 p.m. local time by a staff member answering phone calls at the location and is the second one received by the ADL, after its NY headquarters were targeted last week.

Threats were received in at least 12 states, with an initial wave targeting JCCs in the east. JCCs and schools in New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Alabama, Michigan, and several other states were evacuated after receiving threatening phone calls.

"Not sure how this has become the new normal", Gad said in a message on Twitter.

The most recent rash on Monday resulted in the evacuations of hundreds of pre-school children and senior citizens. We will not stand silent in the face of anti-Semitic acts or any other bias crimes.

Paul Goldenberg, director of the Secure Community Network, told JTA shortly after reports of the bomb threats began coming in that his organization was working closely with the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation to identify the perpetrators and stop the threats.
