Anti-Semitic Incidents Across U.S. Surge by 67%

From PJ Media:

A new report tallying the number of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States from the beginning of the year through the end of September found a 67 percent surge compared to last year.

The Anti-Defamation League audit found the greatest increases in schools, with jumps in bullying and vandalism seen from grade school through college.

A bump in anti-Semitic incidents was also recorded after the August “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., at which one counterprotester was killed when a suspect photographed earlier in the day with white supremacists ran his car into a group of demonstrators.

In the first three quarters of the year in 2016, there were 779 reported anti-Semitic incidents, including 29 cases of assault, 322 cases of harassment and 428 cases of vandalism.

In the first three quarters of this year, harassment reports more than doubled: there were 1,299 reported anti-Semitic incidents, including 12 cases of assault, 703 cases of harassment and 584 cases of vandalism.

    not the biggest issue, but it would help a little for communities to suggest to their local Jewish cemeteries to have surveillance camera systems.

    Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems overwhelming. We need to remember what it was like to fight for Yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

    And with the Rebbe’s brochos & guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.
