Incidents against Jews rise in N.M.

  • January 3, 2018

A recent article in the Santa Fe New Mexican discusses the Anti-Defamation League’s report noting an increasing number of anti-Semitic incidents in New Mexico over the past year. ADL is working with community and law enforcement partners to respond.

“Any increase in anti-Semitism is concerning, especially since this is the second year in a row that the number of incidents has increased,” Scott L. Levin, the Mountain States director of the Anti-Defamation League, said in a statement issued with the report. “It is deeply disturbing that some individuals feel emboldened and empowered to act upon their anti-Semitic beliefs by targeting Jewish individuals and institutions with vandalism, harassment and even assault.”
