Member of Chabad of the Bluegrass attacked at menorah lighting in Lexington

Lexington, KY
- A member of the Chabad of the Bluegrass was hospitalized Saturday after being assaulted by a driver during a menorah lighting ceremony at the Chabad House in Lexington, according to multiple reports. 

A car pulled up as the congregation prepared to light the menorah for the third night of Hanukkah at the University of Kentucky's Jewish Student Center and began yelling abusive language, according to a Facebook post from Rabbi Shlomo Litvin. 

A man who was assisting with the lighting stepped between the driver and the house, where several children were in the front room, according to the post. 

"The attacker grabbed the man and held his arm, dragging him for a block, and running over his leg," the post said. "The car then sped off." 

Lexington Police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said there have not been any arrests related to the incident.
