We wanted to share the statement we released on the terrible news from Israel yesterday. Thanks to those of you who have already shared and reposted on your social media networks. We grieve with the families and the people of Israel in their time of traumatic loss.

On behalf of JDC, our board, and our global staff, we extend our deepest condolences to the families of Gilad Shaar, Naftali Frenkel, and Eyal Yifrach on the news of their horrific and shocking deaths.

For 100 years, we have lived by the belief that all Jews are responsible for one another. At this profoundly heartbreaking time, together with our fellow Jews around the world, we mourn as one with the families of Gilad, Naftali, and Eyal.

May their memories be for a blessing.
