The Anti-Defamation League says anti-Semitic incidents have increased in Massachusetts and Connecticut while they decreased in other New England areas and nationwide. The organization’s annual audit shows hate incidents aimed at Jewish people in Massachusetts rose from 64 in 2010 to 72 in 2011. In Connecticut, incidents increased from 38 to 43. But the organization found that hate incidents dropped in Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island, and that there was a 9.5 percent decline in national incidents. The organization uses crime statistics and information from victims, law enforcement officials, and community leaders for the audit. The audit counts acts of harassment and intimidation, including threats, slurs, and hate propaganda distribution.
