 In Anti-Semitism   Last Updated: March 6, 2018

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which tracks and monitors anti-Semitic incidents in the United States, released an audit of anti-Semitic incidents on April 24, 2017.  This audit shows an 86% increase in anti-Semitic incidents when comparing the first three months of 2017 compared to the first three months of 2016 (541 incidents in 2017 compared to 291 in 2016).

The report notes that anti-Semitic incidents increased by 34% from 2015 to 2016, but much of this increase can be attributed to a spike in November and December of 2016.
