The Jewish Children's Museum in New York City was evacuated for a few hours on Thursday after it received a bomb threat by email, police said, the latest in a rash of recent threats to USA and Canadian Jewish organizations.

A bomb threat was called into the museum at about 9:15 a.m. Thursday morning, an NYPD spokesman said, according to DNAInfo.

The letter-writer claimed he had previously worked with the bomb-planters, but had since had a crisis of conscience. "I recently cleared my mind and I want to prevent this bombing attack for taking place by notifying you".

The gunman, a Lebanese immigrant, killed 16-year-old Ari Halberstam in 1994.

"We ask our civic and religious leaders to speak out against such actions and to affirm the diversity of our community as a source of pride and strength", the statement says. "This is a museum that is a monument to tolerance".

This is the second bomb threat this week that had been made to a Jewish organization in New York City.
