New York Sen. Schumer to give major address on rise of antisemitism in US: ‘crisis’

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer says he will give a speech on Wednesday addressing the steep rise in antisemitism since the outbreak of the Israel-Hamas war.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer is expected to give a major address on Wednesday addressing soaring antisemitism in the U.S. amid the ongoing war between Israel and Hamas. 

In a Tuesday afternoon post on X, formerly known as Twitter, the Democratic leader said “antisemitism is a crisis in the country.”

“As the highest-ranking Jewish elected official, I feel compelled to speak about it,” he said. “I’ll be giving a major address on it tomorrow.” 

Antisemitism has proliferated across the United States – much like the rest of the world – since Oct. 7, when Hamas-led forces crossed the Israel-Gaza border while residents were sleeping, dragging people into the street, taking some hostages, while beheading and killing others. 

Around 1,200 Israelis were killed in the attack, with thousands more wounded and many taken hostage by Hamas, and raped, tortured, and murdered.

Much of the increase in antisemitic rhetoric and attacks has occurred at some of the country’s leading institutions and universities. According to a recent Anti-Defamation survey, there were more than 830 documented antisemitic incidents across the U.S. between Oct. 7, 2023 and Nov. 7, 2023 – or an average of nearly 28 antisemitic incidents a day.
