Colorado saw a slight increase in hate crimes against Jews last year, according to data from the Anti-Defamation League.

Forty cases of anti-Semitism were reported in 2003.

That's up from 37 in 2002, and goes against a national trend that's seen the number of such incidents remain steady.

Colorado ranks ninth in the nation in anti-Semitic crimes.

The Anti-Defamation League says the actual number of anti-Semitic crimes in Colorado is probably higher than the report hows because many incidents aren't reported or aren't classified s hate crimes by law enforcement.

The A-D-L documented 30 cases of harassment and 10 cases of vandalism in Colorado.

Most of the harassment against Jews involved leaflets left on cars and at private residences.
