There were 456 total incidents reported in 2019, 169 were physical attacks, 129 targeted personal property, 77 targeted cemeteries, 53 synagogues, and 28 community centers and schools.
Moshe Kantor, the Center’s founder, shared that they’re also seeing a spike in antisemitism amid the coronavirus pandemic.
“Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant rise in accusations that Jews, as individuals and as a collective, are behind the spread of the virus or are directly profiting from it,” Kantor said.

A man in Columbus, Ohio recently walked through the city touting a sign characterizing a Jewish person as a rat that read “THE REAL PLAGUE.”
“The man holding the atrocious antisemitic rat sign from this weekend’s Columbus, Ohio rally has been confirmed to be the same person from a Detroit 2019 Pride Rally, a member of the National Socialist Movement,” StopAntisemitism.org said in a tweet Monday.
Liora Rez from StopAntisemitism.org provided SaraACarter.com with a flier that a man was distributing to homes in Washington D.C.’s Dumbarton neighborhood in Georgetown. The homes in the area are located within walking distance of a local synagogue, Kesher Israel.
The man pictured above was distributing the hate-filled fliers that blamed the Jewish people for the virus and its spread.
On the eve of #YomHaShoah, as #Israel commemorates the six million Jews murdered by the Nazis in the Holocaust, there's a campaign going on in Palestinian social media using the hashtag #Covid48.

With the observance of Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day being this week, antisemites also didn’t miss the opportunity to promote #Covid48 on Twitter comparing the Jewish state to the virus.
The propaganda “clearly identifies a revival of the medieval ‘blood libels’ when Jews were accused of spreading disease, poisoning wells or controlling economies,” Kantor said, adding that the recent sensation is “consistent with the rise of antisemitism over the last few years.”
