NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Synagogues in Nashville are beefing up security after Sunday's shooting near Overland Park, KS.

Rabbi Joshua Kullock from Nashville's West End Synagogue said work is being done locally to make sure love prevails over hate.

"We pray and we hope and we will keep working together with the rest of society in spreading a message that we will bring peace and will bring cooperation and partnership and not hatred and bigotry and those things that caused a shooting like yesterday," said Kullock.

Kullock also met with Metro police on Monday to continue another Nashville tradition.

For the past 20 years, the West End Synagogue has been partnering with police to help Nashville's Jewish community in the celebration of the Passover holiday, which begins at sundown.

In many cases Jewish families place leavened foods in a closet or cupboard, then the rabbi symbolically sells all of the products to Metro Police Chief Steve Anderson, making him the legal owner of the goods.

Once Passover ends, the chief will sell the goods back to the rabbi.
