June 30, 2014 – 2 Tammuz 5774


It is sad to have to say kaddish for a parent – even one like my mother a”h who who lived a long life.


It is tragic to, G-d forbid, have to say kaddish for a child.


It is beyond all comprehension to have to say kaddish for an innocent child murdered simply because he was a Jew.


My heart cries out in pain over the news of the tragic loss of the kedoshim Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel, may G-d avenge their blood. I mourn with all of Israel, the murder of these three, innocent young boys.

As Jews the world over joined in unified prayer since their kidnapping over two weeks ago, we must continue to beseech the Almighty – “May it be Your will, You who hears the sound of weeping, that You shall place our tears in Your flask permanently, and that You shall rescue us from evil decrees, for on You alone are our eyes fixed.

As I continue to say kaddish for my mother I will have these three holy martyrs in my heart, as well.
