ADL’s Audit of Antisemitic Incidents

In 2020, antisemitic incidents remained at a historically high level across the U.S. with a total of 2,024 incidents of assault, harassment and vandalism reported to ADL. Last year saw the third-highest number of reported incidents against American Jews since ADL started tracking the data in 1979.

ADL has recorded a 60% increase of antisemitic incidents over the past five years. ADL has a comprehensive approach to addressing antisemitic incidents and behavior, including educating youth to prevent these incidents and working with law enforcement to apprehend the perpetrators. ADL advocates to enact laws to improve federal, state and local prevention tactics and responses to antisemitic hate crimes and all forms of hate violence.
