But NYPD counterterrorism official John Miller told members of the Jewish community Tuesday they should remain aware nonetheless.

Miller and other officials gave the intelligence update at a pre-Passover briefing for religious and community leaders.

Passover is one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays. It begins on Monday April 14 and ends Tuesday April 22.

In the briefing, NYPD Director of Intelligence Analysis Rebecca Weiner detailed terrorist organizations’ media and recruitment campaigns.

She said images of New York City buildings and traffic scenes are often displayed in propaganda material.
