In Nassau County, someone destroyed a menorah set up in the front yard of a home in Plainview. The 80-year-old homeowner said this is the second time it has happened to him since 2011. Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.

In Queens, officials said a menorah set up by the Hollis Hills Civic Association on the island at Union Turnpike and 220th Street was found damaged twice since it was installed on Dec. 15.

“This is a very mixed community and this type of incident is an aberration but still we must send a very clear message that this is not acceptable,” State Sen. Tony Avella told 1010 WINS. “I think it’s an attack on the Jewish faith and I think that’s something that we must speak out against.”
