People in York County mourn slain teens in Mid-East

As the Israeli-Palestinian conflict mounts, people in York County attend a memorial service for the three murdered Israeli teens at the York Jewish Community Center, in Spring Garden Township.  The teens were kidnapped while hitching a ride home from their West Bank Schools in June 12th.  Their bodies were found in a field in the Hebron area 18 days later.  Until there’s a resolution to the conflict, people in York County are uniting.

Rabbi Jeffrey Astrachan says, “As a combined group of folks from our community, we can serve as an example for other communities that coming together, praying and hoping is what can help to lead us forward.”
