The Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister is responsible for matters relating to equality and community relations, including issues surrounding anti-Semitism.

I am advised that the Police Service of Northern Ireland record crimes or incidents that have a religious motivation, however these are not routinely broken down into different faiths. The Police Service of Northern Ireland have advised me that there have been five such crimes or incidents since December 2008, including at least one of an anti-Semitic nature.
