The total number of
anti-Semitic incidents in the United States fell by 19% in 2013,
continuing a decade-long downward slide and marking one of the lowest
levels of incidents reported by the Anti-Defamation League
(ADL) since it started keeping records in 1979, the Jewish group said in a statement Tuesday.
ADL’s annual Audit of
Anti-Semitic Incidents reported a total of 751 incidents across the US
during the 2013 calendar year, representing a 19% decline from the 927
incidents reported during the same period in 2012. In 2013, anti-Semitic
incidents were reported in 41 states and the District of Columbia.
