The Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver (JCC) was evacuated for the second time in less than a week following a bomb threat on Sunday morning. The DeWitt center was put on lockdown for some time while police investigated a non-specific threat of violence.

Officers said the threat claimed a bomb would go off at the center at 2:30 p.m.

On Sunday afternoon, Winnipeg's Jewish community gathered with flags in hand and peacefully protested against the threats to their community locally and worldwide.

The most recent threat to the JCC in Whitefish was resolved in just a couple of hours.

A JCC official pointed out the incidents are a direct threat against the entire community, since a large number of non-Jews take part in activities at the Jewish Community Center. Museums, houses of worship, advocacy groups and cemeteries have been targets of bomb threats and vandalism as federal officials work with state and local authorities to find those responsible. The first threat was made on February 20, 2017. "As New Yorkers, we will not be intimidated and we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division".

There have been no reports of bombs or any type of suspicious material being found at the centers.

New Yorkers can also call the NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
