The Perelman Jewish Day School in Wynnewood received a telephone threat on Feb. 9, although no credible threat was found after a police investigation.

A threat was made to the Perelman Jewish Day School in Wynnewood on Feb. 9. According to Captain Frank Thomas with the Lower Merion Police Department, the school received a phone call at 10:30 a.m., from a caller who uttered the epithet, “Kill Jews.”

Thomas told the Jewish Exponent that officers immediately went to the school with bomb-sniffing dogs. After executing an intensive search of the grounds, nothing was discovered and it was determined that there was no immediate threat. The facility received extra attention throughout the day and an investigation is ongoing.

Head of School Judy Groner said she has been in constant contact with parents, and that once the police found nothing suspicious, things at the sfchool went back to normal.

A threat to The Joseph and Florence Mandel Jewish Day School in Beachwood, Ohio, also took place shortly after 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to the Cleveland Jewish News.

Local police, aided by the FBI and the Jewish Federation of Cleveland, investigated and determined there was no credible threat.
