Chief Rabbi Ashkenazi David Lau expressed his shock on Monday at the finding of the bodies of the three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped over two weeks ago in the West Bank. 

"The entire Jewish people across the globe are shocked by the despicable murders. The boys who were murdered are a sanctification of Gods name. [They were murdered] simply because they were Jews, and join the chain of martyrs and pure ones of our people who have been murdered throughout the painful history of the Jewish people," he said.
