Texas rabbi with ties to Michigan says he and three hostages escaped synagogue standoff
Congregation Beth Israel, a synagogue in Colleyville, Texas, strives to be a place where people belong, according to their website. So when a stranger knocked on the door, Rabbi Charlie Cytron-Walker, originally from Lansing, let him in. "I heard a click, and it could have been anything," Walker said. "It turned out that it was his gun."
