Jewish community leaders as well as the leadership of JCC Association of North America met with FBI director James Comey on Friday following the recent and alarming wave of bomb threats that have targeted Jewish community centers across the US.

In the meeting, the Jewish leaders and Comey, accompanied by the senior leadership team of the FBI, discussed the bomb threats as well as the other threats Jewish institutions have been plagued with in recent months. Another topic of discussion was future collaboration between Jewish leaders and the FBI as well as potential strategies that could be implemented to help face the growing threat.

Since the beginning of 2017, over 100 bomb threats have been called in to Jewish institutions including community centers, schools as well as two Anti-Defamation League offices across some 30 states.
