USA - Vandals paint graffiti on sukkah placed in Daley Plaza for Jewish holiday of Sukkot

Chicago, IL
- Vandals struck a Jewish symbol in the heart of Chicago, at the start of a Jewish holiday that's about peace and unity.

Rabbi Meir Chai Benhiyoun from Chabad Center for Jewish Life says someone spray-painted graffiti on a sukkah in Daley Plaza. The sukkah is a hut in which Jewish people eat meals to celebrate God's protection during the week-long festival of Sukkot.

Over the weekend someone defaced the symbol of peace in Daley Plaza. Rabbi Benhiyoun says it’s the first time in 34 years anyone has harmed the sukkah.
