Dear Members:
There is very good news to share with you today. The perpetrator of most of the bomb threats has been arrested. As you know, a copycat caller was arrested a few weeks ago. The suspect is a 19 year old Israeli.
We are very grateful to local, state, national and Israeli law enforcement that found and arrested this person. His clever use of technology made him a difficult target. Apparently, you can run but you can't hide.
This does not diminish our need to be vigilant at all times. If anything, this exercise caused us to be more vigilant and pointed out some of our strengths and weaknesses related to possible threats. JCCs, like any public facility anywhere need to keep safety as a first priority at all times. We must continue to keep our eyes and intellects open and running and to remember to say something if you see something. 
Thank you again to all of our staff and members for your professionalism and patience during these crazy times.
