Los Angeles rabbis’ statement and prayer for the three Israeli kidnapped teens

Last month, the international community expressed its outrage at the kidnapping of hundreds of Nigerian school girls by the Radical Muslim Boko Haram. This past week a similarly radical Palestinian group kidnapped three Israeli high school students. We call upon the international community to raise its voice again, to loudly and definitively condemn this vicious act directed against innocent teenagers.

As spiritual leaders of the Los Angeles Jewish community, we ask our fellow Jews to join our people around the world in prayer on behalf of the captives and their families. We invite our friends in all faith communities to join in that prayer.

May our children be returned to their homes and reunited with their families speedily and safely.

ושבו בנים לגבולם
