The CAM Antisemitism Research Center tracked a total of 108 antisemitic reports worldwide in April 2023, marking a daily average of 3.6 incidents — a 12.2% decline from the previous month.
CAM’s Monthly Antisemitism Report classifies incidents of Jew-hatred (including physical assault, verbal harassment, vandalism, and hate speech) by the ideologies of the perpetrators.
Overall, CAM has tracked 569 antisemitic incidents in the first four months of 2023, an average of 4.7 incidents per day, compared to 723 incidents during the same period in 2022 (6.0 incidents per day). In all of 2022, CAM tallied an average of 5.3 antisemitic incidents daily.
Of April 2023’s incidents, 51.9% (56) had far-right motives (compared to 53.0% of 2022’s yearly total), while 21.3% (21) had Islamist motives (compared to 14.0% of 2022’s yearly total) and 14.8% (16) had far-left motives (compared to 13.5 % of 2022’s yearly total). The remainder — 12.0% (13) — had unidentifiable motives (compared to 19.5% of 2022’s yearly total).
Also in April, CAM monitored 16 physical threats against Jews, as well as 53 incidents of antisemitic vandalism.
