Liberal Judaism Responds to the Murder of Three Israeli Teenagers

In response to yesterday's discovery of the bodies of the three missing Israeli teenagers - Naftali Frenkel, Gilad Shaar and Eyal Yifrach - Liberal Judaism's Chief Executive, Rabbi Danny Rich, made the following statement: 

“The murder of three innocent teenagers is beneath contempt and has rightly been condemned across the world, including by moderate voices on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian divide. The test now is this: will we allow their murderers to dictate the tone, or can we find it in our hearts to respond to violence and hatred with an even greater determination to seek peace and justice?”
