UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (AP) - A suburban St. Louis Jewish cemetery badly damaged by vandals is getting a show of support from volunteers, well-wishers and financial contributors from across many faiths.
Muslim groups have launched a crowdfunding campaign for the Jewish cemetery in University City, Missouri, with a goal of $20,000. By midmorning Wednesday, $66,000 had been raised.
Cleanup continued Wednesday. The cemetery has posted on Facebook that 154 headstones were damaged in a crime discovered Monday morning.
