CHESTERFIELD, MO (KTVI)-- As Passover starts, so is the process of mourning for a community hit with a tragic hate crime in Kansas City Sunday that left three people dead. Many are left wondering why it all happened.

Bob and Susan Weinstein like many others in the Jewish community held a Seder dinner at their Chesterfield home on Monday night and say they`re always praying for peace, hope and understanding.

"You have an individual who did a senseless thing and hurt many people and he didn`t realize they weren`t even Jewish. It was an act of cowardice and hatred," said Susan Weinstein.

Passover events are scheduled for Tuesday across the metro.
