63% of US Jews feel less safe than they did last year, survey says

Nearly two-thirds of American Jews feel less secure in the US than they did a year ago, according to a new national survey.

At 63 percent, the number of American Jews who say they feel less secure in the US jumped 22 percent from last year’s survey.

The survey found that one-quarter of American Jews said they have been the target of antisemitism in the past year. Almost half of American Jews responding to the survey said they had altered their behavior during the past year to avoid antisemitism – changing what they wore, what they posted online, or where they went so other people wouldn’t know they were Jewish.
