Jews were persecuted in ancient Egypt because their religion was very different. Judaism is one of the first recorded religions to only have one god they worshiped which made the ancient Egyptians that believed in many gods and goddesses angry.

The above answer does not correlate with The Bible which holds that the Pharaoh was afraid that they were becoming too numerous and may have risen up against him in revolt. Therefore, to weaken their political position, he enslaved them.
