A large Hanukkah menorah placed in the main square of the Ukrainian city of Dnipro, was knocked off its hinges in an anti-Semitic attack.

Dnipro is Ukraine’s fourth-largest city.

The Jewish community’s Chief Rabbi Shmuel Kaminezki said the incident was not typical in a city where around 60,000 Jews live.

The attack was captured on security cameras that showed five people knocking it over.

“The incident is being examined, and local law enforcement is working to apprehend those responsible,” said Rabbi Kaminezki.

“I hope they get caught, that we know who did this,” he added. “It is important to mention that the city has dozens of menorahs and this is the only case that happened.
