The Southern Arizona Jewish community's thoughts and prayers are with the families of the three Israeli teenage Yeshiva students who have been missing from the Gush Etzion area since last week. At a time when Hamas has become part of the Palestinian Authority, the kidnapping is a tragic paradox. Seizing Israeli teenagers is neither a path to legitimacy nor peace.

As our community looks for a way to express themselves and share their thoughts, a "virtual letter" was created. We hope that this effort will offer the families some comfort in knowing that the Jewish community locally and nationally stands with them at this difficult time. Please click here to sign the virtual letter.  


As more news becomes available, we will share it with you. Please keep #EyalGiladNaftali and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
