There have been no reports of bombs or any type of suspicious material being found at the centers.

"Like all New Yorkers, I am profoundly disturbed and disgusted by the continued threats against the Jewish community in New York", Cuomo said in a statement Sunday.

Saying he was "profoundly disturbed and disgusted" by the threat, Cuomo said it "is a despicable and cowardly act that will not be tolerated in NY".

For the second time in two weeks, the Westside Jewish Community Center on Olympic Blvd near Fairfax Avenue received an e-mail yesterday containing a bomb threat.

North double ends Ireland's Six Nations hopes
Wales needs to play a tight game against Ireland and when they have created space they need to attack and keep the ball alive. The British and Irish Lions star departed for a head injury assessment, temporarily replaced by Ulster's Paddy Jackson.


At the Greater Rochester JCC, police said about 300 people were inside when the threat was received via email, NBC reported.

More than 130 threats have been made in the US alone since January.

The incident marks the second time the JCC has been targeted by threats this week. As New Yorkers, we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division. The incident coincided with roughly a dozen similar threats directed at Jewish organizations elsewhere in Canada and in the US the same day.

Tuesday's threat happened at about 9 p.m., as about a dozen Jewish organizations around North America received similar threats that day.
