UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A cemetery still reeling from destruction caused by vandals took a big step forward on Sunday.

Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery in University City held a re-dedication ceremony.

It comes nearly six months after hundreds of headstones were knocked over, causing thousands in damage.

Sunday's ceremony was to honor those buried at the cemetery and the wide spread community support that's followed the vandalism.

The community raised more then $200,000 to go towards security upgrades.

No one has been convicted in the case.

There is a $10,000 rewards for information leading to an arrest.
