You are using a theme or plugin that uses a jQuery-dependent script with poor syntax. In this screenshot below of the browser console of the page you referenced, the expression should be ... li > a[href*='#']. Note the missing quotes around the #.

The bug didn't show up until now because WordPress 4.5 updated the version of jQuery it uses. The new jQuery version doesn't tolerate the bug. Ideally, your plugin/theme provider should issue a fix.

Until then, you can get the old version of jQuery back by adding the following to your theme's functions.php file:

function wpse_use_previous_jquery() {
    if ( ! is_admin() ) {
        wp_deregister_script( 'jquery' );
        wp_register_script( 'jquery', 'https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.min.js' );
        wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
add_action( 'init', 'wpse_use_previous_jquery' );

It's likely that it's a PHP error related to your template or a plugin, but you'll need more info to solve it. First try disable all plugins and see if that makes a difference.

In order to see any errors that may be occurring, set your PHP display_errors directive to On if you have access, or you can try set the Debug constant in your Wordpress wp-config.php file to true. IE. define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );

If it is a PHP error, the instructions above will help you get more info on what the error is and where it's occurring.
