On Monday evening, the news we were all fearing was released: the bodies of the three kidnapped teens were found in a shallow grave in an open field in Halchul, just north of Hevron. The Hamas terrorists apparently shot them shortly after the kidnapping.

The Jewish people united in prayer and performance of mitzvoth in an unprecedented manner. We truly felt like one family.

And now we are united, mourning with the families of Naftali, Gilad, and Eyal.

Readers can post their message of condolence to the families in the comment section below, and we will deliver them to the families.
