NEW YORK — Hundreds gathered at a suburban Kansas City JCC for an interfaith memorial service for the victims of shootings there and at a nearby Jewish retirement home.
“We all needed to come together to . . . bring into this tragedy G-d, heaven, peace and love,” Jacob Schreiber, president and chief executive of the JCC of Greater Kansas City in Overland Park, Kan., told the April 17 gathering in the JCC auditorium, Reuters reported.
Heavy security surrounded the JCC, where William Corporon, 69, and his 14-year-old grandson, Reat Underwood, were shot dead on Sunday, a day before the start of Passover.
