Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for an investigation into another bomb threat at a Western New York Jewish Community Center.

The Indianapolis Jewish Community Center has received an outpouring of support following two bomb threats in about two weeks.

On February 20, this facility was among at least 10 other Jewish community centers across the country to get a bomb threat by phone, according to the JCC Association of North America.

"People are anxious about whether to send their kids to school and attend programs, if they should come, what type of security there is, and just in general, about bomb threats and violence", said Tal Toubiana, the federation's chief of security.

Similar threats have been called in today in Wisconsin, New York and California. An affiliated Canadian JCC in Vancouver, British Columbia, also received a threat later deemed "non-credible", according to the Jewish Press.

Recently, leaders in the Jewish community met with FBI Director James Comey to discuss these threats in recent months.

On Sunday, as members of the Jewish community were preparing for this week's Purim celebrations, bomb threats were made at seven Jewish community centers in the US and Canada in what civil rights advocates are calling the "sixth wave" of threats made against the Jewish community this year. They found nothing suspicious in this incident either. Some, like the Vancouver center, were targeted twice last week alone. An officer discovered the spray-painted message on an exterior wall of Temple De Hirsch Sinai. Temple DeHirsch Sinai was spray-painted with graffiti that said the "HOLOCAUST I$ FAKE HI$TORY!" The center reopened a few hours after police had made sure the area was secure, both inside and outside.
