Massachusetts Police Investigating After a Menorah and Pro-Israel Sign Was Vandalized

A Framingham menorah display, as well as a sign voicing support for Israel placed in front of the menorah, were vandalized over the weekend, Framingham police said.

Officials said they are investigating the matter as a potential hate crime.

The department received information on Sunday that the menorah at Centre Common on Edgell Road was vandalized. Officials confirmed it had been knocked over while the pro-Israel sign was missing from the display.

Video surveillance shows a person knocking the menorah over around 6:51 p.m. on Saturday. The person hasn’t been identified as of Monday afternoon, police said.

The menorah was scratched and two light bulbs were damaged, police said.
