In the summer of 2014 “our three boys” Eyal Ifrach z”l, Gilad Shaer z”l and Naftali Fraenkl z”l were kidnapped and murdered by Hamas terrorists.
During the time that the boys were missing Jews all over the world joined with the citizens of Israel in support and in prayer for their safe return. This was not to be and the Jewish world stood still as the boys were finally laid to rest 18 days after they had been kidnapped.
At this worst of times for our people, what stood out like a beacon of light and hope was the sense of unity – “achdut” – displayed by Jews everywhere.
Today is the first anniversary of this terrible event, the families of the 3 boys have asked that we remember them by Jewish people everywhere coming together once again.
