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".

Anti-Defamation League CEO Jonathan Greenblatt said the organization received the threat at its offices in New York City. "This is now a national crisis as a troubling pattern of recent anti-Semitic threats have been directed at Jewish Community Centers on a regular basis".

The Anti-Defamation League has been tracking anti-Semitic incidents since 1979. The group, according to its website, "fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all".
