Hanukkah attack highlights disturbing rise of anti-Semitic violence

The shocking attack on a Jewish community celebrating Hanukkah in suburban New York on Saturday brings to a close a deadly year for Jews in the U.S.

Anti-Semitic attacks that have become more frequent, sinister and deadly are showing no signs of abating as the year closes.

Some are motivated by white nationalism, while others have been aggrieved black separatists, radicalized Islamists and conspiracy theorists.
