Nationally and locally, hate crimes are on the rise, according to the “Anti-Defamation League (ADL) 2017 Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents” released on Tuesday. The report shows that in 2017, Arizona had its largest single-year increase of anti-Semitic incidents on record.

The report listed 26 incidents for Arizona last year, including 19 cases of harassment, six incidents of vandalism and, for the first time in two years, one case of assault. Nationally, anti-Semitic incidents on K-12 and college campuses nearly doubled. Non-Jewish schools throughout the country reported 457 anti-Semitic incidents, up from 235 in 2016 and 114 in 2015.
