Beth Or Synagogue in Maple Glen evacuates after receiving bomb threat

The Beth Or Synagogue at 239 E Welsh Road in Maple Glen was evacuated Thursday afternoon after a bomb threat surfaced via email at 11:25am.

The threat brought an immediate response and a sweep of the building and grounds by the Upper Dublin Township Police Department and first responders, Patch reported.

Nothing was found during the search.

“At this time, there is no credible threat to our community. Our children, teachers, staff, and clergy are all safe and accounted for,” the synagogue said in an email to congregants.

Congregation President Leslie Weiss is working with law enforcement to investigate the source of the bomb scare email.

“Our security remains vigilant and in place as always,” the synagogue said. “General building security continues to be in effect per procedure.”
