121 bomb threats in 36 states against the Jewish Community - a new type of antisemitism?

Late last month, someone phoned in a bomb threat to the Mandel Jewish Community Center in Beachwood. 
On that day, bomb threats happened at 11 other Jewish Centers - all across the nation.

Since the beginning of the year, there have been 121 bomb threats at 96 Jewish organizations in 36 states. 15 one day, 26 another day, and so on.
Five waves have happened - with the last one coming February 27th. 

There's also been vandalism at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati.
In total 4 Ohio organizations including in Columbus and in Syvania that have experienced  a threat or vandalism. 

This has many people questioning whether we are experiencing a new type of antisemitism?
