Jewish centers and schools around the country are coping with another wave of bomb threats as officials in Philadelphia begin raising money to repair and restore vandalized headstones at a Jewish cemetery.

The JCC Association of North America says Jewish Community Centers and day schools in 11 states received bomb threats on Monday. No bombs were found. Officials say many of the buildings have been cleared and have returned to normal operations. The FBI is investigating.

It's the fifth wave of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers and Jewish institutions since January.

In Philadelphia, more than 100 headstones were knocked over at Mount Carmel Cemetery. Police are investigating.
