JCC in New Rochelle Among Those Receiving Bomb Threats


Among the Jewish centers targeted this week with bomb threats was the JCC of Mid-Westchester.

New Rochelle Police say the Jewish Community Center of Mid-Westchester,  at 999 Wilmot Road, received a bomb threat via telephone Monday at 11:00 am.

The building was evacuated.

New Rochelle cops and a K-9 team found no explosive devices or suspicious packages.

The New Rochelle bomb threat came a little less than two hours after the Jewish Community Center on the Hudson in Tarrytown was evacuated.

County Executive Robert P. Astorino said, “The bomb threats made today against two Jewish community centers in Westchester are hate crimes that will not be tolerated in our county,” and Gov. Andrew Cuomo said, “In response to these anti-Semitic attacks, I am ordering the State Police to work with our federal and local law enforcement partners to investigate these threats and apprehend those responsible.”

This incidents remain under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to contact the New Rochelle Police Department’s General Investigations Unit at 914-654-2270.
