The Asheville, North Carolina Jewish Community Center received the “all clear” after being evacuated because of a bomb threat.
Employees were moved to a nearby church while authorities searched the premises.
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.
