Menorah vandalized on 1st night of Hanukkah at Alameda City Hall

Alameda, CA
- A menorah put up outside Alameda City Hall was destroyed on the first night of Hanukkah prompting the city to declare: "We have no tolerance for hate."

But by Friday morning, the city's Recreation and Parks Department had erected a new one.

"Chanukah is a time for joy and dedication, the city said in a Facebook post. "We celebrate to remember that hate does not win when we rise up against oppressors. 2020 has been an incredibly difficult year, but Alamedans are resilient, and we will recover. For most of us, our new menorah will shine brighter than ever before. In Alameda, we believe strongly that everyone belongs here in our inclusive community."
