Missing Menorah Returned To Owner
December 2, 2013 — (AP) — A 9-foot metal menorah stolen from the front yard of a rabbi’s home in Munster is back in place.
Rabbi Zalmanov of Chabad of Northwest Indiana says the eight-branched menorah wasn’t damaged and police told him the theft could’ve been a prank.
It was found left in the backyard of a home several blocks away. Police think that whoever took it down quickly discovered how heavy it really was and didn’t want to take it very far.
