29 Oct St. Louis Jewish community joins lawmakers, other faith groups for Tree of Life vigil
STL Jewish Light (October 28, 2018)
The first standing ovation during a St. Louis vigil for the victims of the mass shooting at Tree of Life synagogue occurred after State Sen. Jill Schupp, D-Creve Coeur, spoke of the need to repair the world.
“The word repair is not passive,” said Schupp, who is Jewish. “Thoughts and prayers are critical, but they are not enough.”
