WASHINGTON, D.C. - The White House is denouncing recent threats made against Jewish Community Centers around the country.

The FBI is investigating the threats after dozens were made Monday.

Several communities in New Jersey have also received threats over the past few months.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those threatening to bomb Jewish Community Centers.

Since the beginning of the year, JCC officials have reported nearly 70 bomb threats.

President Trump's daughter, Ivanka, and her family are Orthodox Jews. The first daughter expressed her concern last night. In a tweet, she said, ÔÇťAmerica is a nation built on the principle of religious tolerance. We must protect our houses of worship and religious centers."
