North Carolina JCC evacuated due to bomb threat

The Asheville, North Carolina, Jewish Community Center is being evacuated because of a bomb threat, an employee of the center tells The Times of Israel.

Employees are being moved to a nearby church.

The JCC is home to a preschool, but it is closed today for a teachers’ conference.

The bomb threat follows dozens of similar threats since January in what watchdog groups have said is a major spike in anti-Semitic incidents throughout the US in recent weeks.
