Christian/Jewish relations unharmed by attack on Florida menorah

Starting this weekend, Jews will celebrate Hanukkah, and three weeks from now Christians will celebrate Christmas. Unfortunately, there have already been several instances where menorahs and nativity scenes have been trashed, but none worse than what happened in Miami Sunday night.
 
Not only was a large menorah vandalized in Miami Beach, on the base of the Chabad House menorah was written, “You Killed Jesus.” Unlike some other instances of vandalism, this was not the work of teenage drunks. No, this was clearly the work of bigots seeking to inflame religious tensions. Rabbi Zev Katz, who erected the menorah, is taking the high road: he says this offense will not weaken the Jewish community’s outreach in the area. Catholics should embrace him.
 
Catholics in the area are urged to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at (305) 471-TIPS if they have any leads on this vicious crime.
