Governor Andrew Cuomo has ordered an investigation into another bomb threat against the Jewish Community Center in Rochester.

'As New Yorkers, we will not be intimidated and we will not stand by silently as some seek to sow hate and division'.

Threats have also targeted Canadian Jewish community centres and schools recently in Calgary, Toronto, London, Ont., Vancouver and Winnipeg, including the second threat in a week to the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver.

Due to the nature of the threat, JCC officials decided the keep the facility open while an HPD K9 checked out the building.

At the time, Goldfarb said community members were anxious because it followed similar threats to other Jewish community centres in Toronto, London, Ont. and Calgary.

The Whitefish Bay Jewish Community Center was evacuated Sunday morning following an email threat. There have also been threats recently against other Jewish institutions, as well as vandalism at several Jewish cemeteries. "These threats cause disruption". They found nothing suspicious in this incident either.

Sunday's incident follows a spate of anti-Semitic actions against Jewish centres across North America in recent months.

The religious leaders said they plan to collaborate on ways to combat what they see as rising intolerance targeting individuals because of religion, race, ethnicity, gender or sexuality.

"We take courage from the upcoming celebration of Purim and its story in the Book of Esther, as our people triumphed over the evil plans of those who seek to diminish and destroy us, and as we stand shoulder to shoulder with all who are vulnerable and in need, placing our faith in God to inspire us to ideal a broken world". An officer discovered the spray-painted message on an exterior wall of Temple De Hirsch Sinai.

"We can not allow hatred to become routine". It read: "The Holocaust is fake news".
