We Mourn Together

Eyal, Gilad and Naftali died because they were Jews – al Kiddush Hashem – for the Sanctification of G-d’s name.

As we simply cannot find any words, we will quote from a short piece written yesterday by Rabbi Jonathan Sacks:

We cannot just light a candle and say a prayer. It is up to us now to live our lives in Kiddush Hashem, to sanctify G-d through our deeds and our lives.

The word chaim (life) is in the plural because it contains both the good and the bad. It is up to us to go on.

And that’s what has kept Jews have forever. We have gone in the face of unspeakable tragedy.

May the families be comforted among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
