Locals Come Out to Support the Search for Lauren Spierer

rabbikleinFriends and sympathizers gathered at Scarsdale Synagogue/Tremont Temple Sunday morning September 18 to embark on a walk/run for Lauren Spierer, the Edgemont residents missing since June at Indiana University.

The event was organized by Michelle Gordon, a family friend, to raise funds for the continued search for Lauren and to maintain community awareness of the family’s plight. Participants were asked to make a donation and were each given a blue t-shirt and a blue ribbon to wear on the parkway. The blue was chosen to recall Lauren’s blue eyes. Rabbi Stephen Klein and Cantor Shanin Becker lead a brief service before the group embarked on the walk/ride. The Rabbi asked the group to keep Lauren in their hearts and in their prayers as the search continues. He told the group that a concert called “Shining the Light on Truth and Honesty” will be held in Indiana on Wednesday as part of the effort to get those who know to come forward with the facts surrounding Lauren’s disappearance. In the spirit of Sukkoth, he wished the Spierer family, who are congregants at SSTT, a sense of wholeness and completion.
