USA - Thief in pickup truck steals large Hanukkah menorah in Hollywood

Hollywood, CA - A man who was driving a white pickup truck stole a 6-foot tall Hanukkah menorah from a home on Saturday in Hollywood.

On Monday, the Chabad of Dania Beach delivered a 9-foot menorah to the home. Rabbi Eli Eckstein said he wanted to send a message of resilience.

“Instead of feeling depressed or upset, we are going to spread it even more,” Eckstein said. “We are going to light it and have the entire community come out.”

Witnesses in the Emerald Hills neighborhood told the homeowner they saw the man driving around with the family’s silver menorah, which is made out of aluminum.
