INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Arthur M. Glick Jewish Community Center on Hoover Road in Indianapolis was temporarily closed following a bomb threat.

The JCC posted on Twitter around 10:30 a.m. that the center was closed. They said around 11:45 a.m. that the facility was back open.

“The JCC Indianapolis received a bomb threat that was found to be a hoax,” the center wrote on social media. “No one was injured. Law enforcement gave us the all-clear to resume normal operations.”

A JCC official said the threat came in via phone. Multiple similar Jewish centers across the country were evacuated due to bomb hoaxes Monday morning.
