Street Named After Slain Woman

Lori-street Lori Lynn Lane, Poway, California
Lori Kaye

The woman who was shot and killed trying to protect her rabbi at a synagogue during Pesach in 2019 has been remembered in her home city. 

Lori Kaye – who a few months before the tragedy visited Israel and made a donation to ESRA Modiin – has had a street named after her in Poway, California.

The Chabad Community Center, San Diego, now has bulletproof doors. The garden in front has been dedicated to Lori Kaye.

And a seat has been dedicated in her name at the city's Poway Lake following a campaign by Jane Cohen.
Her friend, Amilia Lev, of Modiin, said: "The street is called Lori Lynn Lane – the family wanted her middle name used rather than her surname."
The Chabad Community Center, San Diego, where the shooting took place, has now been fitted with bullet-proof doors, and the grassed entrance is called Lori's Garden
