Here is a graph showing the number of hate crimes against religions in 2017, just released by the FBI:
Anti-Jewish hate crimes soared from 684 to 938 in 2017, an increase of 37%.
Fully 60% of all anti-religion hate crimes in America were against Jews in 2017.
Anti-Muslim hate crimes, meanwhile, declined from 307 to 273, a decline of 11%.
Hate crimes increased significantly across the board (race/ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, disability, gender) but the increase of antisemitic hate crimes outpaced the other increases. In 2016, 11% of all hate crimes of any type were against Jews, in 2017 that increased to 13%.
