Israel Association of Community Centers (IACC) called on the general public to light candles in memory of the three murdered Israeli teens - Gil-Ad Shaer, Eyal Yifrah and Naftali Fraenkel - in community centers across the country on Tuesday.
In a joint collaboration with the Education Ministry, the centers will remain open throughout the day and during the funerals of the boys, who will be laid to rest at 5 P.M. in Modi’in, to allow people to participate in the mourning as well as to hold dialogue circles and offer support to those in need.
“We bow our heads during this difficult time for all the people of Israel. We all felt a shared fate with the families and would like to enable those who were unable to attend their funerals to participate in their grief and strengthen them,” said Aviad Friedman, chairman of the Board of the IACC said on Tuesday.
