There have been bomb threats at 167 Jewish community centers in 38 states since the beginning of the year.

More than $600,000 in state funding could to help with security efforts at Jewish schools, if approved by the Governor.

This comes after several threats were made toward Jewish Community Centers, including the JCC in Tampa earlier this year.

While the threats turned out to be a bluff, supporters like Rabbi Mendy Dubrowski say the threats were a rude awakening.

Rep. Randy Fine, a Brevard County Republican, says the money would go to pay for security upgrades at Florida Jewish day schools now serving around 10,000 children. Budget documents say part of the funding go to fences and installing bullet proof glass.
