On Sunday, the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism shared the Union for Reform Judaism’s status update regarding three Israeli teenagers who have been kidnapped:
Please join the Reform Jewish Movement in praying for the safe return of the three Yeshiva students who were kidnapped in the West Bank on their way home for Shabbat: Naftali Frenkel (Yaacov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah), Gilad Shaar (Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim), and Eyal Yifrach (Eyal ben Iris Tshoora). Our thoughts are with their families during this trying and uncertain time.
If you or your congregation are looking for prayers to mark this trying time, please look at Alden Solovy’s prayer for the safe return of the three teenagers. Also be sure to read the World Union for Progressive Judaism’s statement and prayer, as well as the Association of Reform Zionists of America’s statement and prayer, regarding the kidnapped teenagers.
We continue to hope and pray for the safe return of three Israeli teenagers, Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel and Elad Yifrach.
