City of Lancaster Statement on Vandalized Penn Square Menorah

November 27, 2021 | Mayor's Office Office of Neighborhood Engagement

This year the City of Lancaster partnered with the Jewish community for the first time to celebrate Hanukkah with a menorah placed at Penn Square. Last night the menorah was intentionally vandalized. And while we don’t yet know the motivation, we will not allow fear, hatred, or ignorance to cast a shadow over a celebration of light. Join us each night of Hanukkah during the lighting of the menorah, starting tomorrow night, to stand in solidarity as a community with our Jewish neighbors and illuminate the darkness behind this action and anything like it, today and every day.

Menorah Lighting Schedule
