Message to the Community

October 28, 2018

The tragic loss of life in the shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue is the most recent of events that disturb us as individuals and urge us to encourage each other as we learn more, understand more, and act in ways consistent with our values. Along with interfaith leaders across the United States and in St. Louis who have begun to organize vigils and events to show a unity of human concern for this loss of life, we will organize a series of Webster University events and forums that will help us in this difficult time.
