About 100 people attended a rabbi-led interfaith service for the victims of the Boston Marathon attack at the site of the bombing.

Rabbi Howard Berman of the Central Reform Temple in Boston led the short service of prayer and songs for runners, marathon volunteers and first responders at the race's finish line on Boylston Street, WBUR radio in Boston reported.

“In whatever way we sing, in whatever way we pray, may we go forth in the spirit of shalom, of wholeness, of healing, and of peace,” Berman said.

Central Reform Temple and five area churches organized the service.
