The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is an international Jewish non-governmental organization based in the United States. Describing itself as "the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency", the ADL states that it "fights anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry, defends democratic ideals and protects civil rights for all" while it "[advocates] for Israel [...] with policymakers, the media and the public" and "defends the security of Israel and Jews worldwide". - Source: Wikipedia
The ADL said it's working with law enforcers to determine if it's connected to threats against Jewish institutions nationwide.
The organization's data, however, showed a 22 decline in anti-Semitic incidents since 2009, when there were 1,211 threats or attacks against Jews in the U.S. That year, ADL described the number of anti-Semitic incidents as remaining at a "sustained and troubling" level.
