US anti-Semitic incidents hit recodMore than 3,600 antisemitic incidents were recorded in the United States in 2022, more than in any year since the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) began tracking the issue in 1979, it said in its annual report released on Thursday.It was the third time in the last five years that antisemitic incidents reached all-time highs, the ADL said.

Acts of harassment, vandalism and assault directed specifically at Jews took place in nearly every corner of the country, it said.

In January, a gunman took three congregants and a rabbi hostage for more than 10 hours at a Texas synagogue. Four months later, a Hasidic Jewish school bus driver was shot with a BB gun in New York City. In September, a congregant was punched leaving a Portland, Oregon, synagogue.

The report "documents alarmingly high levels of antisemitism in the United States, which requires a concerted whole-of-government, whole-of-society response," the ADL said, adding the 2022 number of incidents rose by more than a third over 2021.
