Another wave of bomb threats was reported Monday at Jewish community centers and schools across the country.

Jewish community centers in states including Indiana, Pennsylvania and New York were all targeted, according to a reporter from NBC News.


Jewish day schools in Virginia and Maryland also received bomb threats Monday morning, The Washingtonian reported, but nothing out of the ordinary was found.

Since the beginning of the year, many Jewish community centers have received phoned-in bomb threats.

Earlier this month, the JCC Association of North America reported that 11 Jewish community centers were targeted by bomb threats, all of which proved to be hoaxes. An association official said earlier this month the centers would not be "cowed by threats intended to disrupt people's lives or the vital role Jewish community centers play."

After calls to denounce anti-Semitism, President Trump spoke out earlier this month.

“Anti-Semitism is horrible and it’s going to stop and it has to stop,” Trump said in an interview with MSNBC when he visited the National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The newest wave of bomb threats comes after dozens of headstones were found damaged and overturned at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia this weekend.

Philadelphia police confirmed Sunday that the damage at the cemetery was an act of vandalism.
