Marcus Jewish Community Center receives another bomb threat

Thompson also tried to run for mayor in his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, but, according to Reuters, failed to attract more than a single $25 donation for his bid.

The Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta received a bomb threat late Tuesday, the second this year, Patch has learned. The threats have mostly come in waves, via phone and email. "St. Louis County Police have turned over the investigation to the FBI".

An online campaign started by two Muslims raised more than $150,000 to repair a vandalized Jewish cemetery outside of St. Louis, and a crowdfunding campaign started by non-Jewish residents of Philadelphia raised thousands of dollars to fix toppled headstones at a Jewish cemetery in the city.


On Sunday, at least six JCCs in the U.S. and Canada received bomb threats which were found to be non-credible.

“We encourage you to communicate with individual JCCs, the JCC Association of North America, Jewish Day Schools, Synagogues and other Jewish community institutions regarding victim assistance, grant opportunities or other federal assistance that may be available to enhance security measures and improve preparedness, ” continued the Senators.

"We will always stand with one another against whatever is happening, against intolerance, against discrimination, against violence and in this case against Anti-Semitism". Juan Thompson, a St. Louis resident, has been charged with committing eight of the threats, but appears to be a copycat.
