Report: Violence against Jews Dropped in 2015

Wednesday, 04 May 2016 01:58 PM EDT

JERUSALEM (AP) — A Tel Aviv University report has found a drop in violent attacks against Jews last year, but said the number remains high and that "institutional anti-Semitism" is on the rise.

The university's Kantor Center for the Study of Contemporary European Jewry says it tracked 410 violent cases of anti-Semitism across the globe last year, down nearly 50 percent from 2014.

The study was prepared with the European Jewish Congress.

Moshe Kantor, president of the group, says the results were not all encouraging. He says that 2014 was the worst year on record. He believes attacks went down because of heightened security following a deadly attack at a kosher market in Paris in January 2015.

Kantor also said that nonviolent attacks and slander against Jews in Europe remains high.

This story has been corrected to show that the last name of the group's president is Kantor, not Cantor.
