Jewish centers report bomb threats in several U.S. states

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Jewish community centers in several U.S. states were evacuated on Monday after they reported receiving bomb threats, according to the organizations and national umbrella organization, though no explosives were found and no injuries reported.

Fifteen JCCs across the United States reported the calls and all resumed normal operations by 4:30 p.m. ET (2130 GMT), after police determined there was no threat, the JCC Association of North America said in a statement.

Kaplen JCC in the New York City suburb of Tenafly, New Jersey, said on its Facebook page that it received a bomb threat in the afternoon and had reopened as of 2:00 p.m. (1900 GMT).

"The police have completed a thorough sweep of the JCC and have deemed the threat not credible and the building safe," the center said.

Bender JCC of Greater Washington in Rockville, Maryland, said it had also reopened after receiving a threat and being swept checked by local authorities.

Other centers that received threats included ones in Miami Beach, Florida, as well as the state capitals of Jacksonville, Florida; Columbia, South Carolina; and Nashville, Tennessee,

"1) To punish her son for promoting White Nationalist sovereignty.

2) To profit her local real estate business by instigating Sherry to a fire sale of her property.

3) To profit liberal groups such as “Love Lives Here” through donation of sale proceeds to them or similar anti-racist organizations: which generally oppose the necessary practice of social classification and discrimination on the basis of those social classifications" Quote from Majority Rights website:

That's a lot of coordination. We deplorables need help with our everyday lives, let alone schedule something like this.
