Lori Gilbert-Kaye, Killed in Synagogue Shooting, Mourned at San Diego Funeral

HeadlineApr 30, 2019

In San Diego, California, friends and family of Lori Gilbert-Kaye gathered Monday for her funeral at the Chabad of Poway synagogue, the same place where she was shot to death Saturday by a white nationalist gunman after she put her body in the line of fire to save her longtime friend, the synagogue’s rabbi. Gilbert-Kaye’s daughter, Hannah Kaye, quoted Nelson Mandela as she paid tribute to her murdered mother.

Hannah Kaye: “'No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. Love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.'”
