Pennsylvania Synagogue Evacuated Due to Bomb Threat

Friday’s bomb threat against a Wyomissing synagogue could be part of a statewide email incident, a Wyomissing Police Department officer said Saturday.

According to the officer, the threatening email were sent “en masse” to temples and synagogues across Pennsylvania.

69 News has reached out to Pennsylvania State Police in Harrisburg to confirm this, but has not yet heard back from either.

Wyomissing Police chief John Phillips said Friday that the threat was made against Reform Congregation Oheb Shalom, a synagogue on Warwick Drive.

The threat was ultimately found to be false after members of the Reading bomb squad and Berks County Sheriff’s Department searched the building and found no indications of a bomb being present.

This is a developing story and will be updated.
