Vice President Mike Pence and Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens visit Chesed Shel Emeth on Wednesday to help a cleanup effort after 154 headstones were knocked over or damaged a few days earlier. In a Facebook post on Tuesday, Greitens called for volunteers to come together at the cemetery to show the community’s support. About 1,000 people attended. The Jewish Community Relations Council held an interfaith vigil at the cemetery immediately after the event.Photos by James Griesedieck
