Bomb Threat Called Into Anti-Defamation League's New York Headquarters

Greenblatt also said that the ADL is "working with law enforcement to determine if it is connected to similar threats to Jewish institutions across the country".

On Wednesday, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) received a bomb threat to its NY headquarters, also the headquarters of Univision properties including The Root, making this the latest in a recent series of threats against Jewish organizations.

Greenblatt said the incident won't deter the ADL's mission to combat anti-Semitism and "hate against people of all races and religions".

"We stand with all Jewish people here in NY and across the country to say loud and clear - enough is enough".
