It is with immense sorrow that we learned yesterday about the murders of Naftali Fraenkel, Gil’ad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach z”l – 3 teenagers who were murdered by terrorists.

May their memories be for a blessing.

Our hearts are broken knowing that Eyal, Naftali, and Gilad will never return to the warm embrace of their families.

Today, thousands prayed together at their joint funeral, with Naftali’s mother giving her son an inspiring eulogy: “We will learn to sing without you,” she said.

For members of the Jewish Toronto community, please join us at a memorial service for the slain teens.

Monday July 7th at 7:30pm

Shaarei Shomayim Congregation

470 Glencairn Avenue

Sponsored by UJA Federation and CIJA

We urge you and all community members to attend this important event as an exceptional display of Jewish unity and as a tribute to the innocent victims of a cruel crime at the hands of these heartless terrorists.
