The number of anti-Semitic incidents recorded in Manitoba dropped substantially from 2011 to 2012, according to B’nai Brith.
The annual Audit of Antisemitic Incidents found a 28 per cent decline in reported cases of anti-Semitism: 56 cases in 2012 compared to 78 in 2011.
The number of cases in 2012 is also lower than the 60 cases reported in 2010.
The report states across Manitoba in 2012, there were 39 cases of harassment, 16 cases of vandalism, and 1 case of violence.
Most of the incidents took place in Winnipeg.
The Manitoba situation contrasts with the national average, which saw a 3.7 per cent increase in hate incidents against the Jewish community, the audit stated.
