Bittersweet Rosh Hashana for family of Lauren Spierer

It was a bittersweet Rosh Hashana at Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El as congregants remembered Lauren Spierer, who has been missing since June.

Spierer, 20, went missing in early June after attending a party near Indian University in Bloomington, Ind.

The Spierer family has been a member of the temple for the past 10 years."Certainly Lauren and her family will be mentioned in our prayers and they remain very much in our thoughts and our hearts," says Rabbi Stephen Klein.

Lauren's parents, Robert and Charlene Spierer, have been in Indiana since the beginning, spending nearly every day searching for their missing daughter.

"There's always hope, there is always faith and their mantra now is bring Lauren home; that's what we're all trying to accomplish," says Klein.
