Jewish snowflakes

Apparently the good people of Chappaqua don't like the town's designated holiday flags.
They're unhappy with the blue and white color scheme, which is commonly associated with Hanukkah and also appears on the flag of Israel. Two of the snowflakes are six-pointed Stars of David, and the flags are tapered at the bottom, making them resemble a symbol of Hanukkah, the dreidel.

"My first reaction was, actually, it was a Jewish thing," said Jennifer Cook, who operates a spa in Chappaqua. "I thought it was supposed to be a dreidel, to be honest."
