  • January 11, 2023

New York, NY, January 10, 2023 … ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) expressed its outrage today, following the release of 2022 Hate Crime Data by the New York Police Department. ADL NY/NJ Regional Director, Scott A. Richman made the following statement:

“We are extremely alarmed by reporting of NYPD data showing 263 antisemitic hate crime incidents in 2022. ADL New York/New Jersey saw a record number of antisemitic incidents in 2021, and we expect this trend to continue in 2022. This news follows multiple very recent incidents targeting Jews, including a violent attack in Central Park for which we are offering a $7,500 reward. This data is a sobering reminder of the need to speak out against all forms of hate and ensure that it does not become normalized.”
