Yale fiance's NY synagogue plans memorial service
HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (AP) -- A memorial service for the victim in the Yale killing is planned at her fiance's New York temple between the upcoming Jewish high holidays.
Cantor Sandra Sherry says Temple Beth El in Huntington wants "to create a private memorial service" for 24-year-old Annie Le.
Le was to be married there to Jonathan Widawsky the day her body was found. Sherry says she had "not yet" converted to Judaism.
The Widawskys have said they would avoid services for a while to make things easier for the Long Island synagogue.
The holiday period begins with Rosh Hashana and ends Sept. 28 with Yom Kippur.
Le's body was found in her Yale lab building Sunday. Funeral plans haven't been announced.
