Vandals Desecrate 2 Menorahs in Brooklyn Parks; ADL Head: Shameful Reminder of Anti-Semitism

Two menorahs have been vandalized on Brooklyn playgrounds during Hanukkah, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (December 30, 2016).

One in the Prospect Heights neighborhood was twisted and knocked off its base.

In adjoining Park Slope, another menorah had a branch torn off and its wiring ripped out and cut.

Evan Bernstein, the Anti-Defamation League's New York Regional Director, said, "It [the menorah] is an enduring symbol of Judaism, and its desecration is a shameful reminder that anti-Semitism still exists in our communities."
