The San Francisco Jewish Community center on the 3200 block of California Street received a bomb threat and reported it to police at about 8:25 a.m. May 3. The building was sealed off, and several hundred people were evacuated. Motorists were told to avoid the area, and police and bomb sniffing dogs were brought to the scene. No bomb was found after an extensive search, and the center re-opened mid-morning.
The center includes a gym, classrooms, cafe, gift shop and preschool.
