  • 3 months ago
A record number of antisemitic hate crimes were recorded in the UK last year – according to data from the Community Security Trust charity. It comes as there have been reports of huge rises in antisemitic abuse following the Hamas attack on the 7th of October. Dr Dave Rich, Director of Policy, Community Security Trust, said: "We've seen a tripling in incidents in schools and a similar increase in universities, we've had complaints from workplaces and online. It's really affecting all the places Jewish people go and every aspect of their life." Dr Rich said. Report by Kennedyl.
