Governor Andrew Cuomo is calling for an investigation into another bomb threat at a Western New York Jewish Community Center.

The JCC in Brighton, a suburb of Rochester, received a bomb threat around 11:40 Sunday morning. This is the second threat in less than a wee.

The building was evacuated.

"It is especially repugnant that this latest act of anti-Semitism took place on Purim, a day that we celebrate the resiliency of the Jewish people," said Governor Cuomo. "I am directing the New York State Police to coordinate with federal and local law enforcement to launch a full investigation into this matter."

Governor Cuomo says New Yorkers stand together as one family, and "an attack on one is an attack on all."
