On June 12, 2014, Gil-Ad Shaer, Naftali Fraenkel, and Eyal Yifrah—three teenage boys awaiting a ride home from their yeshivas at a Gush Etzion bus stop—were kidnapped and brutally murdered by terrorists. Eighteen days later, their bodies were found in the Hebron Hills. Amidst a nation of shattered hopes and despair, their funeral was held the next day in Modiin.
JNF is collaborating with the Gush Etzion Regional Council and the Gush Etzion Foundation to build a local promenade connecting the Gush Etzion junction, the local bus stop (site of the kidnapping), Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, the “Lone Oak Tree,” and the Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim. The promenade will aim to enhance quality of life and make the area safe and secure, as well as serve as a memorial of the three boys who lost their lives.

We are so incredibly proud of our Special in Uniform participants, who have been involved in the Nepal relief efforts, packing materials for delegations and preparing those flying over to help our brothers affected by the tragedy.
