JCC of Metropolitan Detroit Is Latest In String of Bomb Threat Targets

January 18, 2017 | John Hardwick

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit and the Jewish Community Center of Metropolitan Detroit would like to share the following:

Earlier today, a bomb threat was received at the Jewish Community Center in West Bloomfield, via an anonymous phone call.

The building was immediately evacuated and subsequently swept by a joint team from the Federation Security Department and the West Bloomfield Police Department. As of 2:05 pm, after a comprehensive search, the all-clear was given for the return to normal building operations.  

This incident took place amid a string of unsubstantiated bomb threats to JCC facilities across the country. As a result, local and national authorities have remained on alert and are actively investigating this situation.

As always, the Jewish Federation and the Jewish Community Center will remain vigilantly committed to the safety and welfare of our Jewish community.
