Fighting Antisemitism

JCRC is committed to fighting antisemitism through education, collaboration, and advocacy.

Antisemitism is on the rise: the United States recorded more than 2,100 acts of assault, vandalism and harassment targeting Jews, an increase of 12 percent over the previous year, according to the ADL’s 2019 Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents.

One in four American Jews has been targeted by antisemitism over the past year, and nearly four in 10 report changing their behavior for fear of being identified as Jewish or for their safety or comfort as Jew, according to AJC’s State of Antisemitism in America 2021 report.

Hate crimes in America disproportionately target Jews. Last year, according to the FBI’s Hate Crime Statistics, 57 percent of all religiously motivated hate crimes were against Jews, who make up just 2% of the U.S. population.
