At least 21 Jewish community centers and Jewish day schools across the country received bomb threats on Monday in the latest wave of threats to hit Jewish institutions.
The incidents are the fifth wave of such threats in less than two months, in which 89 bomb threats have been called in to 72 Jewish institutions in 30 U.S. states and one Canadian province, according to the JCC Association of North America.
Police in Philadelphia are trying to determine who vandalized a Jewish cemetery over the weekend.
Between 75 and 100 tombstones were overturned and damaged Saturday night at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery in the Wissinoming neighborhood. The incident is being classified as institutional vandalism, but investigators have not established a motive, said Det. Jim McReynolds of the police department's Northeast Detectives Division.
Cemeteries are located on each corner of the intersection, but no vandalism was found at the three Christian cemeteries, he said.
"As far as we know it's limited to the Jewish cemetery," he said.
Мотив этих действий полицейским понять не удается. Действительно, такого же никогда и нигде не случалось!
