Jewish schools, community centers and four offices of the Anti-Defamation League were targets of a new wave of bomb threats across the U.S. on Tuesday.

The ADL headquarters in New York City received an anonymous phone call about a bomb in the building just before 10 a.m. Police searched the building, but no explosive device were found, WCBS-TV in New York reported.

And Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO of the ADL, took to Twitter to announce other offices received threats, too.

Five threats, including the one at the ADL office were received in New York, NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said.

"We had five this morning,” Boyce said. “So these are coming in at an unprecedented rate."

And the Chicago Tribune reported at least 12 Jewish schools and centers in cities throughout the U.S. received bomb threats on Tuesday.

It said those cities include Chicago, Washington, D.C., New York, Atlanta, Boston, Syracuse and Portland, Ore., according to the newspaper.

And NBC News reported that the JCC Association of North America reported 98 threats made against Jewish community centers and Jewish day schools in the first two months of 2017.
