Shomrim of Baltimore, a northwest-Baltimore community patrol group, has confirmed the same letter which was received at Beth El Monday was received at a Jewish boys’ school, Mesivta Neiumus HaTorah on Crest Heights Road near Reisterstown Road.
According to Fox Balitmore, the same package was sent to multiple other synagogues and Jewish schools in the Parkville/Park Heights area, but no one else reported feeling ill from them like at Beth El. Shomrim said the item is apparently an envelope from Dallas, Texas, “containing Christian religious information regarding being ‘saved.'”
Additionally, Baltimore County Fire Department confirmed investigations at three sites. They said Har Sinai Congregation, a synagogue on Walnut Avenue in Owings Mills, got the letter a week ago and reported it after today’s incidents. That envelope also did not have anything hazardous.
Beth El School in Pikesville went on lockdown Tuesday.
Baltimore County Fire Officials told Fox Baltimore several people reported symptoms of illness after opening a suspicious package at the school on Park Heights Ave.
