Bomb Threats force evacuations at 2 Bay area Jewish institutions

The Osher Marin Jewish Community Center in San Rafael was evacuated after it received a bomb threat at 8:45 this morning.  It was one of 32 Jewish institutions in 16 states threatened today. The Ronald C. Wornick Jewish Day School in Foster City was also targeted.   Today's threats follow a January 9th wave of 16 bomb threats also directed towards Jewish community institutions.

Occupants of the San Pedro Road Jewish Community Center were taken to a nearby Marin School. Other nearby schools were placed on lockdown as a precaution.

Similar bomb threats called in today to Jewish community centers, schools and other institutions in Miami; Edison, New Jersey; Cincinnati and Alabama,  Albany, New York, Nashville; suburban Boston and Detroit; West Hartford, Connecticut, and Orlando.
