News: Traffic was recently stopped for a number of hours on Wilshire Boulevard in L.A. due to threatening phone calls regarding a bomb that was allegedly placed at Wilshire Boulevard Temple, a 150-year-old Reform temple. An early childhood center, an elementary school and a teen program occupy space at the temple. Additionally, the LAPD spent hours utilizing highly specialized equipment to investigate an empty police car parked nearby that a caller said had a bomb inside. The bomb threats turned out to be hoaxes… Colorado Springs police are looking for vandals who spray-painted a swastika on the Chabad of Southern Colorado’s Chanukah menorah.
