In the month of January this year, there were 48 bomb threats in different Jewish centers across the country.

A fund-raising campaign was launched by two Muslim American activists Linda Sarsour and Tarek El-Messidi to pay for the knocked over headstones after the cemetery of St Louis was vandalized, and raised more than $1,30,000. Some of the extra funds would go for the restoration of the Philadelphia cemetery, El-Messidi had written on Facebook.
