Police: Antisemitic Hate Crimes Up 125% in NYC

(JNS and combined sources) The New York Police Department reported 45 antisemitic crimes in the city in November, compared to 20 over the same period in 2021, according to police data. Also according to their data, Jewish New Yorkers were the most targeted group in the city, accounting for 60 % of all hate crimes that occurred.

New York City Mayor Eric Adams last Wednesday denounced the increase in global Jew-hatred in an address at the 2022 Mayors Summit Against Antisemitism in Athens, Greece.

“The temperature is increasing ever so slightly that we have allowed [antisemitism] to normalize in every part of our lives. We have become accustomed to it; it has become popular,” said Adams at the event, which was attended by over 50 mayors and municipal leaders from across the globe.
