The Home Office does not hold the requested information. The Home Office do receive data on hate crimes recorded by the police in England and Wales for the five centrally monitored strands (race, religion, sexual orientation,
disability and gender identity) but these data cannot be broken down by religion of the victim. The most recently available data relate to the financial year 2013/14 and can be found at this link:

The Association of Chief Police Officers also publishes data on hate crimes for England, Wales and Northern Ireland. These figures separate out the number of crimes that were anti-Semitic. Data for 2013/14 can be found at this link:

The Home Office uses a range of additional sources of information from stakeholders in assessing hate crime, including information on anti-Semitic hate crime from the Community Security Trust.
