Dear Prime Minister Netanyahu,
We are writing to you at this difficult hour to declare the complete solidarity of the Jewish community of North America with you, with the families of the abducted students and indeed with the entire people of Israel.
At this critical moment you should know that The Jewish Federations of North America, representing 153 federations, 300 smaller Jewish communities, and the entirety of the North American Jewish community, stand shoulder to shoulder with the government and people of Israel. The three kidnapped teens are our sons too, and we join with Jewish parents around the world to offer our prayers, thoughts and solidarity with you as you stand up to terror and mount every possible effort to bring the boys home.
We know that the government and security forces are doing everything in their power to locate and safely rescue Eyal Yifrah, Naftali Frenkel and Gilad Sha'ar, and we pray for their safe return.
