Chicago vigil for kidnapped teens set for Monday

BBOB

A vigil in solidarity with Israel and the families of the three kidnapped teens will be held at 12 p.m. noon this Monday, June 23, in downtown Chicago.

The event, organized by the Jewish United Fund, will rally the community and other friends of Israel at the James R. Thompson Center, 100 W. Randolph Street. Chicagoans will show their support and pray for the return of the captive teens.

Eyal Yifrach, 19, Gilad Shaar, 16, and Naftali Frenkel, 16, were abducted a week ago while hitchhiking home.

Those wishing to attend should RSVP to the event on Facebook and are encouraged to invite others in their social networks.
