FBI Warns of 'Credible Threat' to Synagogues in New Jersey
The FBI in Newark, New Jersey, said on Thursday afternoon, November 3, that it has received “credible information of a broad threat to synagogues” in the state.
“We ask at this time that you take all security precautions to protect your community and facility. We will share more information as soon as we can. Stay alert. In case of emergency, call police,” a tweet from the office said.
In a second tweet, the agency said it was taking a “proactive measure” with that warning, while “investigative processes are carried out.”
New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said he is in touch with the FBI, the state’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness and the state attorney general.
The Anti-Defamation League said it was working with the FBI to address the credible threat and advised synagogues and Jewish organizations to “remain calm and in heightened state of alert.” (INN / VFI News)
