The Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre at Bloor and Spadina was evacuated for a couple hours after it received a threatening phone call after 10 a.m.

About 600 people, including children from the Downtown Jewish Day School inside the building, managed to get outside in a matter of minutes.
Police and firefighters searched the building and surround area but did not find anything suspicious.
The Centre’s executive director Ellen Cole says it’s highly unfortunate.
”It’s meant to sow fear and anxiety and we stand together as a community and we know we will all be strong together.”
Meanwhile, the Jewish Community Centre in London, Ontario also received a threat, it’s second in as many months.
And in the U.S., the Anti-Defamation League says threats were made to four of its offices across the country, at least six Jewish community centres and three day schools.
Authorities have been looking into over 120 threats against Jewish organizations in three dozen states since early January along with a rash of vandalism at Jewish cemeteries.
