  • Another Menorah Display Vandalized

    Police are investigating a possible hate crime after a 6-foot tall Chanukah menorah was vandalized and smashed yesterday in Evanston, Illinois. The display is run by the Chicago Mitzvah Campaign (CMC), by its Director, Rabbi Aron Wolf • Photos, Full Story

    A 6-foot tall Chanukah menorah was vandalized and smashed yesterday in an incident that is being investigated by Evanston police as a possible hate crime. The electric menorah is prominently displayed at a hospitality facility that is located at 1022 Central St, outside the Evanston metro station and right opposite Evanston Hospital. The facility is run by a Jewish community service organization called the Chicago Mitzvah Campaign (CMC), and provides a variety of services to patients, visitors and staff members at the hospital.

    “The menorah’s lights were smashed and the switches were all ripped out,” said the CMC’s director, Rabbi Aron Wolf. “This wanton destruction of property is incredibly disheartening, and especially at this time of year, when we should be recognizing everyone’s right to celebrate holidays in a spirit of brotherhood and goodwill.”

    Security cameras at the CMC’s hospitality facility were not able to identify the vandals, but police are currently investigating to see if surveillance in nearby facilities may be of assistance.
