Antisemitic Incidents in US Hit All-Time High, According to ADL Audit

(JNS) A record-high number of antisemitic incidents were recorded across the United States last year, according to the just-released “2021 Audit of Antisemitic Incidents” by the Anti-Defamation League.

More than 2,715 instances of Jew-hatred, including assaults, were reported last year—an increase of 34% from 2020 and the highest number of incidents since the ADL began keeping records in 1979.

Every state reported at least two incidents of antisemitism, though New York charted the highest number of cases nationally. More than 400 incidents were recorded in New York in 2021, up from 336 in 2020, with more than 60% occurring in the five boroughs of New York City.

California and New Jersey both saw more than 300 cases of antisemitic incidents in 2021. Florida documented nearly 200 cases, while Michigan and Massachusetts had around 110 cases each.
