Unfortunately, antisemitic and other hate incidents occur on a regular basis in Omaha and the metro area. Antisemitic incidents reached an all-time high in the United States in 2021, with a total of 2,717 incidents of assault, harassment and vandalism according to the ADL.
If you encounter an antisemitic or other hate incident, you are not alone. Your first call should be to the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) in Omaha at 402-334-6572, or email JCRCreporting@jewishomaha.org. Our office will contact law enforcement if necessary and report it to the ADL for data collection and additional support.
If an incident occurs in a school, we will contact administrators and utilize our resources from the Jewish Federation, the Institute for Holocaust Education, and the ADL.
