Anti-Semitic incidents and actions of hate against Jews have significantly increased both in the United States and around the world as a result of the October 7 massacre and the ongoing conflict between Hamas and Israel.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) reports that in the two weeks that followed the start of the Middle East crisis—which was brought on by a Hamas attack on Israel—anti-Semitic occurrences in the US increased by over 400%.
