Swedish government pushes funding to protect Jewish community as antisemitism spikes globally

The Swedish government is granting more funds to its Jewish community to bolster their security as antisemitic incidents spike across the globe.

Pro-Palestinian and Pro-Hamas rallies have popped up in Europe, the U.S. and elsewhere as Israel prosecutes its retaliatory war against Hamas in Gaza. The Swedish governmet granted 10 million Swedish kronor, or just under $900,000, to the Official Council of Swedish Jewish Communities on Wednesday.

Sweden says the funds are to be used to improve security at Synagogues, schools and other Jewish organizations.

Meanwhile, American Jews studying in Israel say they are outraged by what they see as a rise of antisemitism back home in the United States following the worst terrorist attack in the history of the Jewish state.
