In utter horror and profound grief we learned of the murders of the martyrs in the holy land of Israel,


Yaakov Naftali Frankel, Gilad Michoel Shaar and Eyal Yifrach

Hashem Yikom Damam

The deaths of these three kedoshim represent an immense loss to Klal Yisrael.

Chabad representatives and their communities worldwide join the world Jewish community in praying and grieving with the families. 

We call on world leaders to demand swift and severe punishment for the perpetrators of these heinous crimes against human life.  

During this time of great mourning, let us take the Rebbe’s message to heart, and increase in acts of kindness and goodness towards one another, fortifying ourselves through Ahavat Yisrael.

As we stood united with all of world Jewry in praying for the return of our boys, we mourn with them their brutal, tragic deaths.

To the parents, siblings and families of the boys, 

May G‑d console you among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
