At least eight Jewish community centers in the U.S. received bomb threats on Monday, according to several news reports.

Authorities said JCCs in Miami, Miami Beach, Tenafly, New Jersey, Jacksonville, Fla., Washington D.C. suburb Rockville, Wilmington, Del., Nashville, Tenn., and Columbia, S.C., reported receiving bomb threats over the phone. All were evacuated and reopened when no bombs were found on the premises.

CBS Miami reported that two Jewish community centers, Dave & Mary Alper Jewish Community Center and Miami Beach Jewish Community Center, were evacuated when threats were called in on Monday morning.

The Dave & Mary Alper Center had 450 students and 70 employees inside when the call came from a local number, prompting the quick evacuation.

The New York Daily News reported that the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly posted on its Facebook page that someone had called in a bomb threat in the early afternoon.

"All children and adults were swiftly and safely evacuated," it said.

The center reopened an hour after police had swept through and "deemed the threat not credible and the building safe."
