Let us Bow our Heads: Mourning Eyal, Gilad and Naftali
June 31, 2014
It is with a heavy heart that we learned a few hours ago that the bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teenagers have been found in Hebron. Naftali Frankel, 16, who had dual Israeli-American citizenship; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Eyal Yifrach, 19, were abducted on their way home from school on June 12.
It is a sad day for Israel and the Jewish people. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these young men and the people of Israel in this time of grief.
We urge all leaders throughout the world to condemn the kidnapping and brutal murder of these innocents.
We do not know what developments will unfold in the coming days, or what actions Israel may take. Hadassah stands with Israel and supports its right to protect and defend its sovereignty and security.
We encourage you to express your condolences and support to the government and people of Israel. You can send messages mentioning that you are a Hadassah member to Prime Minister Netanyahu, your local Israeli Consulate or via social media.
Zichronom livracha. May the memories of Naftali, Gilad and Eyal be for a blessing.
