The recent terror attacks in France and Copenhagen that took the lives of Jewish citizens, raising fears of another wave of anti-Semitism

The Ministry of Immigrant Absorption in Israel said more than 26,000 Jews immigrated to Israel last year before the terror attacks. That’s a 10-year high. France was the largest source with 7,000 leaving for the Jewish state. That’s double the rate from 2013 when nearly three-quarters of French Jews surveyed said they were considering leaving that country. In England, nearly half of Jewish respondents told pollsters they were concerned that Jews may not have a long-term future in Britain. It’s a startling trend.
