Chicago synagogue, sukkah vandalized


(JTA) — A Chicago-area synagogue, including its sukkah, was vandalized.

Temple Menorah in the Rogers Park neighborhood of Chicago was attacked early Tuesday morning. The building, which houses three Jewish congregations and a Jewish day school for girls, had its windows broken and the sides of its sukkah slashed, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Wednesday.

Chicago police are investigating the attack as criminal damage to property and have not labeled it a hate crime, though area Jews have. 

Rogers Park, on the north side of Chicago, is home to a large concentration of Jews.
