Anti-Semitic Bullying Now Reaching To Early Grades
With friendships shifting, academic pressures mounting and physical changes happening either too fast or too slow, most middle school students are awash in anxiety. Increasingly, Jewish tweens now have to face another, more threatening challenge, one that experts tie to a toxic cultural and political environment in the country: anti-Semitic bullying.
According to a new report released by the Anti-Defamation League, anti-Semitic incidents have risen sharply over the past year, with the biggest increase taking place at schools. Victims as young as 10, the report finds, are being bullied with swastika graffiti and such comments as “go back to the concentration camp” and threats that they would be “burned like they did in the Holocaust.”
