Twenty-seven Jewish Community Centers in 17 states received bomb threats on January 18, according to a news release from the JCC Association of North America. But nothing was found.

The JCC is on Providence's East Side not far from Blackstone Boulevard.

"Any anti-Semitic act or act of intimidation aimed at Jewish institutions and people in Pennsylvania is truly reprehensible and we must find those responsible and hold them accountable", Wolf said in the statement.

"The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are disgusting and are painful and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate and prejudice and evil", he told reporters.

Instead of offering any help, the woman allegedly started firing a gun at her vehicle. Whomever was in the other vehicle ran off and another auto pulled up.


"This morning's news of bomb threats on Jewish Community Centers in Westchester is both wicked and devastating".

It's the second time such an incident has happened at the center in the past year and, for Jewish institutions, "it's really just a question of when it happens", Shtulman said. "Members of our community must see swift and concerted action from federal officials to identify and capture the perpetrator or perpetrators who are trying to instill anxiety and fear in our communities". They will not succeed.

"Rhode Islanders and people all across our country are already coming together to oppose these acts of hatred", he continued. Simply put, hate has no home here in Camden County and we will prosecute the suspect who engaged in this act of hate and terror to the fullest extent of the law. In the days following that conference, Trump did denounce violence directed toward Jews, and Vice President Mike Pence was photographed helping to clean up the debris in the desecrated cemetery in St. Louis. He retweeted praise from white nationalists. After consecutive press conferences in which he responded to questions on the topic with brags about his electoral-vote total and rebukes of reporters for broaching the issue, Trump finally condemned anti-Semitic incidents last week during a visit to the Smithsonian. "This has to end".

"What really goes through our heads is, 'Oh, no, not again, '" he said outside the center, after police cleared the building. From our country's founding we've been dedicated to protecting the freedom of our citizens' rights to worship. This story will updated with the latest and we'll have more tonight in a live report at 6.
