AT LEAST 10 JEWISH COMMUNITY CENTERS ACROSS THE U.S. WERE TARGETED WITH BOMB THREATS TODAY

At least 10 Jewish community centers across the United States were targeted with bomb threats on Monday, for the fourth time in five weeks.

The threats have been called in to JCCs across the country, according to Paul Goldenberg, the director of Secure Community Network — an affiliate of the Jewish Federations of North America that advises Jewish groups and institutions on security.

News reports indicated that threats were received by JCCs in Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin; St. Paul, Minnesota; Houston, Texas; Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Birmingham, Alabama.

The threats were called in on Monday morning. It is not known if they were live calls or recorded.

“It appears to be the same serial caller” as inthe prior incidents, Goldenberg told JTA.
