More than 1,000 people gathered Sunday at Beth El Synagogue to remember a St. Louis Park man who was shot and killed in a Minneapolis workplace shooting on Thursday, the Associated Press reports.

George W. Bush appeared at a Republican fundraiser Wednesday night at the St. Louis Park synagogue.
A crowd of roughly 100 peaceful protesters gathered outside the Beth El Synagogue on Wednesday night, decrying the man speaking inside—former President George W. Bush. The protesters held up signs that labeled the country’s 43rd president a “war criminal” and a “torturer” for his authorization of enhanced interrogation techniques during his presidency. Some symbolically wore prison jumpsuits, in reference to detainees of facilities such as Abu Ghraib. When people attending Bush's appearance began to file out of the St. Louis Park synagogue around 7 p.m., the handful of remaining protesters chanted “shame.” Bush spoke to an intimate crowd of about 250 inside, and members of the media weren't invited. The American Jewish World reported that …

Former President George W. Bush will speak at a St. Louis Park synagogue on Sept. 21.
With former President George W. Bush scheduled to speak at a local synagogue later this month, some are planning a protest outside the event.

The AJW reports that the press will not be invited. The AJW obtained a letter from Gil Mann, Beth El's president, that states that the appearance is due to the efforts of congregants Elliott and Marlys Badzin. Mann also writes: (Bush's) appearance coincides with the 10th anniversary of 9-11, a time when our country came together with a singular purpose. This national tragedy defined …
