Vancouver Jewish Community Centre receives second bomb threat in a week

Vancouver Jewish Community Centre receives second bomb threat in a week

Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for an investigation into another bomb threat at a Western New York Jewish Community Center.

The same community centre received a bomb threat March 7 that also turned out to be a hoax.

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

Police blocked off the entrance at 10:30 a.m.as they investigated the threat.

This is the second threat in less than a wee.




The Rochester JCC was one of several Jewish institutions to receive a bomb threat on Sunday in the latest wave of intimidating acts targeting the Jewish community.

According to reports, the other threats to Jewish community centers were received in Milwaukee, Chicago, Indianapolis, Rochester, and Vancouver. State Police are now on the scene and working in partnership with local authorities, including the Brighton Police Department.

It was not the first threat for the Louis S. Wolk JCC.

Officer completed a search after that time as a precaution and did not find anything suspicious.

The center was closed and evacuated Sunday morning while authorities cleared it. As New Yorkers, we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division.
