Anti-Semitic hate crimes have been on the rise over the past ten years, federal officials reported, reaching their highest point last year. The Times of Israel tells us that hate crimes against Jews have climbed, with the true number likely even higher than the numbers say:

The number of anti-Semitic hate crimes in the United States increased significantly in 2019, according to the FBI, in a year that saw three lethal attacks against Jews in the country.

Anti-Semitic incidents once again made up the majority of hate crimes based on religion.

In addition, federal officials recorded the highest number of hate-motivated killings since the FBI began collecting that data in the early 1990s, with the number of murders nationwide more than doubling the previous year.

The total number of hate crimes rose to the highest level in more than a decade.

The Anti-Defamation (ADL) League cautioned that the FBI’s numbers probably represent just a fraction of total hate crimes committed nationwide.

Let us all, Christians and Jews alike, stand together as people of faith against this growing threat to God’s children.
