The Jewish Federation of St. Louis mourns the terrible loss of life in the terrorist attack that took place in Jerusalem on Sunday. This attack has hit close to home as one of the victims, Sara Kampler, was injured in the attack.
Sara devoted a year of national service to the St. Louis community as a bat sherut in the 2009-10 school year. She taught weekly lessons here about Israel to students at Epstein and at the Mirowitz legacy schools, Schechter and Reform Jewish Academy, as well as in several synagogue religious schools. She also was part of the Derech Eretz summer camp, and touched many in our community with her warmth, and passion for the Jewish people.
We are comforted that Sara’s injuries will heal with time and that she will make a full recovery. Our condolences go out to the families of all of those whose lives were taken and sympathies to those who were harmed by this dreadful attack.
May we all know peace and security in our time
