harvard mneorah toppledPolice in Cambridge, Mass., are investigating a possible hate crime after a man was seen knocking over a menorah at Harvard University.

The Boston Globe reported that two witnesses saw a man dressed in black walk up to the lead menorah and topple it before fleeing on bicycle over the weekend.

A video of passers-by lifting the toppled menorah has gone viral, with over 26,600 views on Twitter.

The menorah was placed at Cambridge Common by student group Harvard Chabad.

Rabbi Hirschy Zarchi, founder and director of Harvard Chabad, told the Harvard Crimson that menorahs have been vandalized in over the past 19 years that the group has been placing them.
