Temple Kol Emeth, a reform congregation in East Cobb County, will be hosting a
candlelight vigil on July 1, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. for the three Israeli teens that were
kidnapped and found dead on June 30 in the West Bank. The event will take place in
Temple Kol Emeth located at 1415 Old Canton Road in Marietta.
The three teens -- Eyal Yifrach, 19; Gilad Shaar, 16; and Naftali Frenkel, a 16-year-old dual U.S.-Israeli citizen -- disappeared late June 12 or early June 13 from the Jewish settlement of Gush Etzion in the West Bank, according to the Israeli military.
Temple Kol Emeth invites the public to mourn the lives of these three extraordinary
teens whose disappearance have made national and international headlines. The
evening will be led by Rabbi Steven Lebow and Rabbi Erin Boxt will include a candle
lighting, songs, and readings for peace.
