WE JOIN TOGETHER IN GRIEF AND MOURNING


Following the discovery of the murders of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrach, Chicago Jewish United Fund Chairman David T. Brown and President Steven B. Nasatir issued the following statement.

Today, we, the Jewish people, the State of Israel, and all people of conscience, mourn with the parents and loved ones of Gilad Shaar (16), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Eyal Yifrach (19), the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped on June 12 and subsequently murdered by terrorists.

These youngsters were the victims of those who have contempt for human life, and who see young students as choice targets for their boundless hatred of Israel and Jews.

In a world and a region threatened by growing fanaticism and unspeakable brutality, there must be no place for those who seek to destroy individuals, communities, and nations based on religion, ethnicity, or any other grounds.

Amen.
