Israeli Yeshiva Students Missing, Kidnapping Feared

June 13, 2014

Israeli media is reporting on three yeshiva students from Kfar Etzion who are missing and believed to be kidnapped by terrorists. We hope for their safe and quick return and ask the Jewish community at large to please recite Tehillim for:

  • Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah
  • Gilad Michael ben Bat Galim
  • Eyal ben Iris Teshurah

Arutz Sheva reports:

Three students of the Makor Chaim Yeshiva in the religious kibbutz Kfar Etzion went missing Thursday night in what officials say was likely a kidnapping by terrorists.

All communication was lost with them as they were on their way home from the yeshiva, located roughly between Jerusalem and Hevron in Judea; security sources suspect they were taken into a vehicle driven by terrorists that stopped for them as they waited at a hitchhiking post.

The story has been under a media embargo until now, given the sensitive nature of the incident and the danger posed to the three. Several false reports concerning the event were circulated in its initial aftermath, but these are the initial details of the incident that have been permitted for publication as of now.
