JCCV Statement on the Murdered Boys

01 July 2014

The Jewish Community Council of Victoria (JCCV) has expressed its devastation, grief and outrage on the much feared news of the murders of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel.

Nina Bassat AM, JCCV President said, “These innocent students were kidnapped and murdered only because they were Jewish.  What unfathomable inhumanity.”

“The Victorian Jewish community grieves for the loss of these young people as we think about what might have been.  We mourn for their families and hope our prayers bring them some solace.  And we seek justice for those responsible for such evil.”

“Tragedies such as this take us to the edge of despair.  But, as always, as a community we pray for peace for the sake of our children and our children’s children.”
