NYPD Searching for Men who Desecrated Menorah

The NYPD is searching for a half-dozen suspects who allegedly knocked over and destroyed a menorah at a Staten Island shopping plaza late last month in a suspected antisemitic hate crime.

The department’s Hate Crime Task Force released images Friday of the six young males they’re after in the Dec. 24 vandalism in New Dorp.

The menorah was standing at 2656 Hylan Blvd. inside The Boulevard shopping plaza when the group targeted it around 9:30 p.m., according to cops.

They kicked over the menorah, causing it to crash to the ground and break, police said.

The suspects were last seen headed northbound on Hylan Boulevard.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

The incident came amid a 121% increase in anti-Jewish hate crimes in the city in December compared to December 2022, and as the three-month Israel-Hamas war continues.
