CHERRY HILL, New Jersey (WPVI) -- Calls from extremist groups to spread antisemitism on Saturday in the form of fliers, banners and graffiti are upsetting to many.

New Jersey State Police and Cherry Hill Police say they're not aware of any credible threats but will continue to monitor the situation.
The Jewish Federation of South Jersey issued a statement Friday, saying there is not a specific time or organized event, and there is no information suggesting it would happen in South Jersey.

They don't anticipate a widespread movement, but pockets of the country may see activity.

"What these groups typically want is that attention so they can then retweet or rebroadcast any information that's out there," said Brad Orsini, Senior National Security Advisor for the Secure Community Network. "So we want people to be aware, report and not engage."
Security experts we spoke with today encourage anyone who sees anything suspicious to call it into local police.
