Again and again, the calls have come in.
In Miami, hundreds of young students fled their school building. In Foster City, Calif., parents scrambled to pick up preschoolers whose school suddenly closed for the day. In West Hartford, Conn., elderly women climbed out of the pool mid-swim to evacuate.
And so it went in Albuquerque, in Birmingham, Ala., in Chicago and about 50 other cities — a rash of ominous phone calls, threatening that a bomb had been placed at a Jewish community centers, in more than half the states in the country and one Canadian province since the start of January.
On Monday, the latest wave of calls targeted JCCs as well as Jewish schools in 11 states, according to JCC Association of North America. Two Jewish schools in the D.C. area were among the targets.
