For the second time in a little over one month, the Tanenbaum Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto was the target of antisemitism.

After the North York high school received an email claiming bombs had been planted, a call to 911 saw police respond within minutes.

 

 

 

As a precaution about 1,300 students as well as staff were evacuated as a precaution.

The school was searched and fortunately no devices were found.

“As a community, we are incredibly upset and outraged that these kinds of antisemitic events continue to take place and we think that it is essential that all Torontonians and all Canadians react with shock and anger and upset to these kinds of events,” said Jonathan Levy, head of the school.

”All of our students, all staff, all people deserve to live in an environment where they can come to school and go to work free of these kinds of threats.”

Saying it’s concerned and outraged by this incident, the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto says it further highlights the need to maintain a high level of readiness and security.

Police say they’re investigating the source of the threat.

In mid October, a man and two teens were charged after threats were made against the same school and a group of students.
