News10NBC spoke with members of Rochester’s Jewish community about the horrific shootings in Overland, Kansas.

Rabbi Yitzi Hein, Chabad Lubavitch of Pittsford, said as they observe Passover with Seders tonight, the victims will be remembered too. He says all houses of worship are vulnerable to evil acts, but what’s needed goes beyond basic security needs.

Rabbi Yitzi Hein, Chabad Lubavitch of Pittsford, said, “It's still not a perfect world. There are still unfortunate things out there and it is our job to right those sad things which, in a way is what the Passover is about.”

Rabbi Hein says the world is not a perfect place, but he will talk about how each of us can do our part to try to make it better.
