All 100 US senators have signed a letter urging the Trump administration to step up security at Jewish community centers, day schools and synagogues following a new wave of threats.
Bomb threats via phone and email were reported in Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, Washington and Wisconsin. They are among more than 100 threats made across the United States and Canada since early January, according to the Anti-Defamation League.
In the letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and FBI Director James Comey, the senators wrote: "We are concerned that the number of incidents is accelerating and failure to address and deter these threats will place innocent people at risk and threaten the financial viability of JCCs, many of which are institutions in their communities."
