Since the Kansas City shootings at two Jewish Community Centers, Lexington Jewish leaders have been reaching out to their friends affected by the tragedy.

Rabbi Marc Kline of Temple Adath Israel said, "Everybody there really feels violated spiritually, emotionally, and physically."

During Passover, families will gather together, with a reminder of the holiday's importance.

Rabbi Moshe Smolkin of Ohavay Zion Synagogue said, "It's a tragic way of coming aware that humanity is not yet free. The holiday of Passover is about freedom and we're not quite there in terms of our world just yet."

The Jewish leaders said they will continue to show Kansas City their support and pray for them.
