NYPD reports 31 antisemitic hate crimes during December 2023

The New York Police Department reported 31 antisemitic hate crimes in December, up from the same month last year but down from October and November, when anti-Jewish attacks increased to following Hamas’ invasion of Israel on October 7.

Last December’s total is more than double the same month in 2022, when there were 14 anti-Jewish hate crimes. 

Antisemitic crimes accounted for more than half of the 59 hate crimes reported to police in the city last month. There were also 11 hate crimes motivated by sexual orientation, four anti-Muslim hate crimes, four anti-Asian hate crimes and nine others in several other categories.
