Candle-light vigils by L.A. Zionist youth, mourn with aunt of Israeli student shot by Palestinians

Zionistic youth utilized social-networks to organize prayer vigil on
L.A. street for souls of abducted yeshiva teens 
In the Pico-Robertson area of Los Angeles, Jewish teens gathered in solidarity to pray for the souls of their bretheren teens, Eyal Yifrach, 19, and Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel, both aged 16. Leehy, the aunt of Gil-Ad recently relocated to Los Angeles and has become the reluctant recipient of well-wishes and inspiration from Israeli and Jewish Americans. JooTube shows some of the candle-lit prayers of the gathered supporters, some of whom were locked-out of an overflow community prayer service at Beth Jacob Congregation- at which Israeli Consul General David Siegel and Leehy Sha'er appeared. 

KNBC-TV News's Robert Kovacik reported the story on their 11 o'clock report.

Avichai ben Shmuel led Monday June 30th and Mati Cohen led Tuesday July 1st gatherings. In addition to Leehy Sha'er, neighborhood residents, Chaim Potremoly, Moti Gur, Lily Steiner, and Steve Lackner voice their opinions on keeping Jews safe from Muslim militancy.

The Israeli kidnapped yeshiva boys were found dead of bullet wounds Monday, June 30, in the Palestinian village of Kachil near Halhoul north of Hebron on the West Bank. They appeared to have been thrown into a field by their abductors after a hasty effort to conceal them. 

Their parents were informed earlier of the discovery. The families have gone into deep mourning. The all-out search has switched urgently from Operation Brother’s Keeper to discover the boys to the hunt for their kidnappers. 

The Israeli cabinet was summoned to an emergency session Monday night to determine how to respond to the tragic deaths. The suspected abductors are two Hamas activists, missing from their homes at the same time as the boys’ disappearance. Thursday, June 26, the Shin bet security service named them as Marwan Qwasmeh and Amer Abu Aisha from Hebron. (DebkaFile).

On Friday, July 4th at Los Angeles Int'l Airport, a ceremony will be held to commemorate the 12th anniversary of the El Al flight check-in attack- the 1st jihadist attack in California. The ceremony will be held beneath the central structure opposite Terminal 6 from 10:45 until 11:30am.
