Greensboro, NC -- Nearly a week after tragedy struck Newtown, CT, communities continue to honor the victims.
An Interfaith Memorial Service was held Thursday night at Temple Emanuel in Greensboro.
Together, community members honored the 20 children and six teachers, who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on Friday, December 14.
Rabbi Fred Guttman of Temple Emanuel and clergy of other faiths delivered readings and prayers from diverse religious traditions, including Jewish, Christian and Muslim.
"It tapped into our family values. It tapped into how we understand our community. And it certainly brought up the greatest questions of our faith," said Rev. Grier Richards,
Presbyterian Campus Minister at UNC Greensboro.
"It hits us in a very vulnerable place," said David Gutterman. "There's much more power in healing together than there is solo, or by yourself."
Clergy from 15 houses of worship in the Triad, plus civic and educational leaders participated in the service.
Amos Quick, vice chairman of Guilford County Schools, delivered the keynote remarks.
Everyone who participated in the service wore green and white ribbons, Sandy Hook's school colors.
