TORONTO — Anti-Semitic incidents decreased slightly in Canada in 2013 over the previous year, but cases of vandalism rose “significantly,” according to B’nai Brith Canada.

The organization’s annual audit of anti-Semitic incidents released Friday found that there were 1,274 incidents recorded last year, a 5.3 percent decrease over 2012.

While episodes of harassment decreased to 872 from 1,013, representing a nearly 14 percent drop, acts of vandalism rose by 21.6 percent — 388 in 2013 from 319 the prior year. Cases of violence also increased, to 14 from 13.
