The worldwide American Committee for Shaare Zedek Medical Center family mourns the devastating murder of Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar and Naftali Frenkel, z”l.

It is with profound sadness that we extend our deepest condolences to their families.

In the words of President Shimon Peres, “The whole nation bows its head this evening with a grief too heavy to bear, These 18 days the nation has prayed in one voice that our wonderful boys would be found alive and well. Now, upon hearing the bitter news, the People of Israel mourn the untimely deaths of the best of our young.”

Our hearts are with their families. May the memories of Eyal, Gilad and Naftali be for a blessing and may their loved ones find peace and comfort in our collective thoughts and prayers.
