Update: The menorah has been rebuilt and replaced, and Chabad of Northwest Seattle is on schedule for its Sunday 5:30 p.m. lighting event.
The school is also raising money to build a bigger, stronger Menorah.
Earlier: A large menorah installed by Chabad of Northwest Seattle at Bergen Place Park was torn down Wednesday night, the second night of Hanukkah.
“We are appalled to discover that our beautiful Magen David Menorah in Ballard has been destroyed! Such acts of hate have no place in our community,” the non-profit school posted on Facebook. “We are hopeful the authorities will handle this expeditiously.”
