With anti-Semitism on the rise, Deseret News talked to 50+ Jews  worldwide. 

Vicki Anne Crane won’t be putting a menorah in her window. She didn’t last year; she’s afraid to celebrate publicly. Crane, a 29-year-old Jewish writer who lives in San Diego, said last year someone spray-painted swastikas on the sidewalk in her neighborhood.  “It would be nice and feel safer to not be the only Jewish presenting house for miles. I hope they research and learn about the holiday and Judaism in the process. Everybody should be able to experience the joy of Hanukkah.”

Crane looks forward to lighting the menorah but she’ll do so in the privacy of her living room. She hopes maybe one day, when she has children of her own, she’ll feel safe enough to light the menorah and place in in their family’s front window.

Before charging anti-Semitism, make it clear that what you are discussing is other than the Israeli occupation and its godawful maltreatment of Palestinians. What is being called anti-Semitism in many instances is a strategic charge in response to the global BDS movement in support of Palestinians.

I find no reason to clarify the obvious.
