Brooklyn Jewish Children’s Museum Emptied By Bomb Threat

Police said they are investigating a bomb threat called into the Jewish Children’s Museum early Thursday in Brooklyn, according to DNA Info.

The call happened just before opening hours in the Crown Heights neighborhood.

It is the latest in more than 130 bomb threats called into JCCs, Jewish schools and other institutions nationwide since the beginning of 2017. On Tuesday an anonymous caller threatened the New York offices of the Anti-Defamation League.

Executives from 141 JCC signed a letter sent to Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wednesday urging more progress in stopping the threats.
