Apparently not understanding the difference between an LDS Temple and a local chapel, reporter Christine Cube contacted Temple President Sterling Colton, former general counsel for Marriott International, who told her that attendance at the temple hasn't changed since the attacks. However, Geoff Howard of the LDS Church's public affairs office did tell Cube that attendance at the over 20 LDS chapels in the Washington DC area may have changed. However, those figures weren't available.

Deseret News Reports Jerusalem Center Closing
The Deseret News reported today that BYU has closed its Jerusalem Center due to the instability in the area. According to the report the center will not take students for at least the next eight months - through June of 2002.

Mormon News already reported the closing last month, following an article in the BYU Daily Universe.
