Jews are the victim of over a sixth of religious hate crimes, despite making up a tiny fraction of the UK population, a Home Office report for England and Wales shows. 

While the proportion of religious hate crimes aimed at Jews fell slightly from a record high of 1,919 in the year ending March 2022 to 1,596 in the year ending March 2023, this number continues to be substantially higher than in recent years – more than twice the number of antisemitic hate crimes record in 2017/2018 (672).

With under 300,000 Jews living in the UK, the statistics confirm the community was disproportionately targeted during the 12-month period.

This year, we want to do more to bless Israel and the Jewish people.

We know that as we bless Israel this year, God will bless us, just as He promised in Genesis 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Now is the time to bless Israel and the Jewish people.
