Dear Friends of The Fellowship,

I am deeply saddened to relay the news shared just now out of Israel: The bodies of the three kidnapped Israeli teens – 16-year-old Gilad Shaar, 16-year-old Naftali Frenkel, and 19-year-old Eyal Yifrach – have been recovered.

We grieve with their parents and with all of Israel. Since their abduction two weeks ago, we have been in fervent prayer for their safe return. And now I ask you to join me in praying for God’s close and powerful comfort for families and loved ones of these three boys.

Thank you, my friends. Israel is united in this time of grief — and I cannot tell you what a comfort it is for all of Israel to know that Christians and Jews around the world have also united with them to pray for these young men and their loved ones. May you be blessed, even as you have blessed God’s children.

With prayers for God’s precious shalom, peace,

Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein
Founder and President, International Fellowship of Christians and Jews® of Canada
