Faith leaders: 2 menorahs vandalized in Park Slope
Two menorahs on display in Brooklyn parks were vandalized, according to community faith leaders.
The branches of the menorahs were found broken with their wires cut, according to Rabbi Mendy Hecht, director of Chabad Jewish Center of Prospect Heights.
One of the menorahs is located at the Park Slope Playground between Fifth and Sixth avenues. The other is at Underhill Playground.
Hecht believes they were vandalized sometime between Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning.
Rabbi Hecht released a statement saying, "The menorah is a beautiful holiday symbol. I condemn this deeply offensive act. These incidents of hate have no place in our society and is not in any way a reflection of Prospect Heights or Park Slope, which are wonderful neighborhoods."
