The Jewish Children's Museum in Crown Heights was evacuated at 9:30 a.m. Thursday morning after the organization received an email saying several pipe bombs had been hidden in the building. And in Vancouver, Canada, for the first time, a Jewish Community Center received a bomb threat Tuesday night as well. Police officials said no explosives were found, but they did confirm a threat was made Thursday morning.
The lawmakers said in the letter they want to make sure the centers can continue to "serve their communities free from violence and intimidation".

In a statement, Williams says, in part, "Birmingham's Jewish community, members of the JCC as well as the families that use their day care facilities are being targeted by threats of domestic terrorism".
The wave of threats was at least the fourth against Jewish organizations since January.
The Jewish Association Serving the Aging, which has an office building for case management on Coney Island Avenue near Glenwood Road in Midwood, received the bomb threat via text message at around 8:35 a.m., cops said. "We've never seen, ever, the volume of bomb threats that we've seen".

"We're in unprecedented times", said Oren Segal, director of the ADL's Center on Extremism.
The governor made note of a special unit of state police that is focused on the threats.
Still, we are frustrated with the progress in resolving this situation.
Miller said the NYPD is working with federal officials, who are the lead investigators on the case, as well as with institutions in NY to help them manage responses to the threats.
