Since posting our response to Monday’s anti-Semitic crimes in Highland Park, many folks have reached out to the HPCC sharing their concern and asking for additional ways they can show their solidarity with Jewish neighbors. What a heartening response! To that end, the HPCC encourages people to put pictures of menorahs in their front windows to make the point that hate will not be tolerated in Highland Park. This effort was suggested by a neighbor who was inspired by another community’s response when something similar happened, as described in the book, The Christmas Menorahs: How a Town Fought Hate.
Paper menorahs can be purchased locally at Target. Alternatively, here is a black and white menorah coloring sheet. Thank you, neighbors, for showing your concern and stepping up!
