Cartas Ao Nosso Presidente:

Dear Andre Moshè Pereira,

For more than 30 years, ADL has produced an annual review and analysis of anti-Semitic incidents in the U.S. We have just released our 2006 Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents. The 2006 audit reports approximately 1,500 anti-Semitic incidents across the U.S.

It is important to note that while the audit indicates a decline in anti-Semitic events in the U.S., we saw a troubling level of violent anti-Semitism, such as shootings, beatings, graffiti and other forms of vandalism. The deadly attack on the Jewish Federation in Seattle, an anti-Semitic assault of a Brooklyn woman on the subway and the brutal beatings of two Jewish men in Phoenix are sobering reminders that violent acts of anti-Semitism continue in the U.S.

Read the full 2006 Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents for more information on anti-Semitic events on campus, harassment by hate groups, a slideshow of anti-Semitic incidents and a state-by-state tally of incidents near you. Help ADL continue to track and report anti-Semitic incidents and fight the ongoing battle against anti-Semitism.
