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 organization says Massachusetts registered the third highest number of anti-Semitic incidents in a nationwide tally, after New York and California.
A surge in anti-Semitic incidents reported within the U.S. during the first nine months of 2017 suggests an increase of about 67 percent over the same period last year with respect to assaults, vandalism and other attacks targeting Jewish institutions, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said in its Audit of Anti-Semitic Incidents released Thursday.
