Group reports record tally of antisemitic incidents in 2021 | Ap

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) โ€” A Jewish civil rights organizationโ€™s annual tally of antisemitic incidents in the U.S. reached a record high last year, with a surge that coincided with an 11-day war between Israel and the Hamas militant group, according to a report released Tuesday.

The Anti-Defamation League counted 2,717 antisemitic incidents of assault, harassment and vandalism in 2021, a 34% increase over the previous year and the highest number since the New York City-based group began tracking such incidents in 1979.
