According to an FBI report released yesterday, Jews were the most targeted demographic for hate crimes among religious groups in 2019.
UnitedwithIsrael (h/t nita) Out of the 1,650 religious-motivated hate crimes reported to the FBI, 60.3%, or almost 995, were against the Jewish population—a 2.5 percentage point increase from 2018. Jews make up only about 1.7% of the U.S. population. Muslims were targeted in only 13.2% of these crimes.
Last year, there were numerous anti-Semitic attacks against Jews and Jewish institutions.
These included a lone gunman shooting at Chabad of Poway in Southern California in April 2019 on the last day of Passover, which left a 60-year-old woman dead, to a spree of anti-Jewish incidents in the New York metropolitan area.
In 2019, anti-Semitic crimes increased 14 percent.
