  • Another Bomb Threat at Westside Jewish Community Center

"The new bomb threat against the Brighton Jewish Community Center - the second threat in less than a week - is a despicable and cowardly act that will not be tolerated in NY".

South Vancouver's Jewish Community Centre was evacuated Sunday morning after receiving a second email bomb threat in less than a week.

This is just one of many recent threats to the Jewish community worldwide.

"We will find whoever is responsible for this and bring them to justice", Cuomo said.

A Crown Heights Jewish museum got an emailed bomb threat on Thursday, and someone texted a scare to a Midwood Jewish Center on Friday - both sites were later cleared by police.

Last week's threat involved an email message, and that incident is still under investigation.

Earlier this week, ADL offices were also the target of bomb threats as well as Jewish Community Centers and day schools in upstate NY and at least four other states.

This is the second threat at Indy's JCC in less than three weeks.

More than a dozen Jewish community centers have received similar threats across the USA recently.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, called the bomb threat "despicable" given the center's service to the community. "As New Yorkers, we will not be intimidated and we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division".
