  • The Mission Continues

    As in the past so it remains today - we were and still are under the selfsame commitment to adhere to the directions of the Gedolei Yisrael, who stand guard against breaches of purity threatening our camp. When we were required to ask – we asked. When we were instructed to depart – we left. The moment we are summoned back to raise the flag, every other consideration is pushed to the side and we answer: We are ready!

Long Island: Anti-Semites Vandalized Chanukah Menorah

It isn't even Chanukah yet, but vandals in the United States have already managed to damage a large Chanukiya in Long Island. The police are on high alert.

The police in different American districts are on high alert, in preparation for the possibility that anti-Semites will attempt to vandalize the large Chanukah menorahs that are set up in various public locations. The police hope this year to catch the vandals in the act and prosecute them for the crimes they commit.

The decision to increase police vigilance in Jewish neighborhoods was reached after an anti-Semitic incident occurred on Friday night. A large menorah, with 9 legs, was toppled over by vandals in a Jewish neighborhood in Long Island.
This is not the first time such an incident has occurred, but unlike other years, the vandals began to wreak havoc an entire week before the Chanukah holiday even begins.

Unfortunately for the vandals, the police were well prepared for incidents like this one this year, and the entire act was captured on camera. The Suffolk County police in Long Island announced that their department has taken a number of steps in order to find and apprehend the 3 youths that were filmed knocking over the menorah, which had been set up outside a pharmacy in the center of the Jewish neighborhood.

The police say that in preparation for Chanukah, hidden cameras have been set up in numerous locations adjacent to large Chanukah menorahs, all over the United States, in an effort to catch Anti-Semitic delinquents.
