MONROE TOWNSHIP - The fatal shooting of three people at a Jewish community center and retirement complex in Kansas has some Jewish leaders in New Jersey looking for added security through the Passover holiday.

Investigators say the shooting deaths on Sunday were motivated by hate. They say the man they arrested, 73-year-old Frazier Glenn Cross, is anti-Semitic with links to the Ku Klux Klan.

Rabbi  Eliezer Zaklikovsky, of the Chabad Jewish Center in Monroe Township, says his thoughts are with the victims.

"The enemy lurks from beneath, you never know when it's going to strike,” said Rabbi Zaklikovsky. “But we are going into the holiday of Pesach, we're very strong and proud."

The rabbi told News 12 that he has asked for extra security during the holiday.
