Global Anti-Semitism Report: December 23, 2020
December 23, 2020
This week, vandals painted a swastika on a Brooklyn yeshiva; a French Jewish family was violently assaulted in their car; and the runner-up in the Miss France beauty pageant faced online anti-Semitic harassment after revealing her Israeli heritage.
Meanwhile, the Halle synagogue gunman was sentenced to life in prison by a German court, and the United States Congress increased security funding for houses of worship and for religious non-profits. Enhanced security measures for Jewish institutions is critical for safeguarding Jewish life – as is holding violent offenders accountable for their crimes.
