Religious leaders struggle with security questions

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — After 11 people were killed when a gunman opened fire at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh Saturday, West Michigan religious leaders are struggling with what security measures to add and to what level.

Deciding what to do is about balance; a balance that doesn't come easy. 

“We're still looking for it," Rabbi David J. B. Krishef said.

The leader of Congregation Ahavas Israel in Grand Rapids says the synagogue will review security measures this week.

“Everybody is looking at these questions, because large or small, urban or rural, we all could be vulnerable," Krishef said. "None of us wants to create or add to an atmosphere of fear but all of us want to make sure that people feel safe when they come in to our building.”
