Police in Lexington, Kentucky are investigating the vandalism of a menorah and sign at the local university’s Jewish Student Center. This is the fourth time that the sign has been vandalized over the years and comes just months after the Chabad-Lubavitch emissary received threats over the phone.

No one has been arrested yet for the vandalism. Several security cameras are stationed outside of the Chabad center, and an individual is going through the video for clues to the perpetrator.

Rabbi Shlomo Litvin, co-director of the campus center, discovered that the menorah had been shifted off its base and the sign bent in half. “Because this has happened before, we have a very strong sign, and it took a lot of force to bend it,” said Litvin, who immediately called the police.
