Hundreds of residents of the Pennsylvania town of Lancaster turned out to support the town’s Jewish community after a chanukiah in the town-centre was vandalised.
The custom built steel chanukiah, which was designed by Mark Joshua Lewin, was damaged just hours after its unveiling in Penn Square.
On Sunday, the first night of Chanukah, hundreds of residents came out to support the city’s Jewish community. Messages of support and concern were also posted on social media and around the town.
A message board outside a Quaker hall read: “We stand with our Jewish neighbours: there is no room for hate in Lancaster County.”
