This family's experience just one of the reported incidents of anti-Semitism in Wisconsin tracked every year by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC).
"If we don't shine a light on it it will grow," Director Elana Kahn said.
Kahn views the audit as an opportunity for others to stand up for anyone being targeted.
"We want to create a culture in which people realize that it's their responsibility to call out bigotry whenever they hear it," she said.
The most distressing aspect for those who work on the audit every year is what's happening in schools.
"These kids, sometimes they don't tell their parents right away or they don't tell their schools right away, and they carry this burden alone," said Ann Jacobs, who is part of the JCRC's Constitutional Law Task Force.
