Jewish Federations of North America Express Grief and Outrage Over Deaths of Kidnapped Students in Israel


The Jewish Federations of North America and the worldwide Jewish community joined with the State of Israel today in grief and horror following the announcement of the tragic deaths of  Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Fraenkel and Gilad Shaar.


Michael Siegal, Chair of the Jewish Federations Board of Trustees, issued the following statement:

"It is simply unimaginable that anyone could commit such a heinous and despicable act such as this. As Jews, as mothers and fathers, as sons and daughters, and simply as people, our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Eyal, Naftali and Gilad at this time. There is no reason - none - why a tragedy like this should have occurred. The Jewish Federations stand alongside our brothers and sisters across the world and in Israel in condemnation of this senseless murder, and we pray that those responsible are swiftly brought to justice."
