JERUSALEM, Israel -- The French Jewish community saw a 58 percent rise in anti-Semitic attacks in 2012.  

According to a report released Tuesday, there were 614 anti-Semitic attacks in 2012, up from 389 the previous year.

"2012 has been a year of unprecedented violence against Jews in France," the Jerusalem Post quoted the report by the security branch of the Jewish communities in France, known as the SPCJ.

Physical and/or verbal attacks rose by 82 percent, and a quarter of the 96 physical attacks documented in the report involved weapons.

A whopping 90 attacks took place in the 10 days following the terror attack at a Jewish day school in Toulouse in March, which left three children and a teacher dead.

And Jews were assaulted 28 times over the next eight days after the bombing of a kosher supermarket in Sarcelles on Oct. 6.
