BREAKING: FBI Warns Of Imminent Threat to NJ Synagogues

By 11/03/2022 3:40 PMNo CommentsBy YidInfo Staff

On Thursday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation sent a warning to synagogues in New Jersey, informing employees of a “broad threat” and advising them to take protective measures.

The warning was published on Twitter by the FBI’s Newark office.

The alert stated, “The FBI has received credible information about a broad threat to synagogues in NJ. We request that you take all necessary security measures to safeguard your neighborhood and facility.

However, the FBI promised that authorities would “provide more information as soon as possible.”

The FBI advised citizens to contact their local police in case of a threat or potential violent crime.

It wasn’t immediately apparent what the threat was, but according to law enforcement sources,  it wasn’t a bomb threat.

Despite the fact that there are no specific threats to Ocean County, the county’s sheriff, Michael Mastronardy, has asked for more patrols to be conducted.

According to him, the FBI, the state’s Office of Homeland Security and Preparedness, and the state attorney general are all in contact with New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

The FBI’s warning comes amid ongoing reports of anti-Jewish bigotry across the nation, including several antisemitic signs that appeared in public places in Jacksonville, Florida, over the weekend, as well as a group of protesters who displayed signs over a freeway in Los Angeles earlier in October in support of antisemitic remarks made by Kanye West.
