The Nation

January 15, 1986

Neo-Nazi groups such as The Order are a growing concern among Jews, even though reports of anti-Semitic harassment, vandalism and abuse declined 11% nationwide last year, the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Brith said in Chicago. There were 638 reports of vandalism against Jewish homes and institutions in 34 states and Washington, D.C., in 1985, down from 715 in 1984, according to the league's annual audit of anti-Semitic activity. In 1985, the league's 30 regional offices also reported 306 anti-Semitic assaults, threats and incidents of harassment, including abusive letters and phone calls, a decrease of 17% from the previous year.
