Brookline Police report that Temple Beth Zion received a bomb threat Friday evening - the latest in a string of such hoax bomb calls to Jewish congregations across the country.
At this time, all indications suggest that this was a hoax call.
Police reported at 9:05 p.m.:
All Clear at Temple Beth Zion, 1566 Beacon Street. Building has been checked, and Temple staff updated. Units are clear of scene.
Earlier in the week, the Forward reported that at least 26 temples had been swatted over the past month. The hoax calls to synagogues are typically made during Friday-evening services, the ADL says, adding that two ADL offices have also been targeted.
