Jewish museum reopens after threat, but tension lingers
The Jewish Children's Museum in Crown Heights is back up-and-running following last week's bomb threat, and some workers and visitors remain on edge.
Someone sent the threat in an email on Thursday, prompting the museum to evacuate and shut down. Officials say it was the museum's first bomb threat, but police say similar threats have spiked 64 percent this year, compared to the same period in 2016.
"Technically they locked 200 children out of learning about tolerance because they were being intolerant, and that's the lowest of the low," says Barel Majesky, a father who was at the museum Monday.
Visitors say they hope police make an arrest in the case soon.
