Kidnapped Teenagers' Families Meet for First Time

The parents of kidnapped yeshiva students Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) met for the first time at the Frenkel family home Tuesday morning since the teens were kidnapped by Hamas terrorists Thursday night. 

Several MKs, religious officials, and members of the public have flocked to the families' homes since news broke of the kidnapping Friday to comfort the families - but in this meeting, the families sat alone for over an hour, observers at the scene said. 

"We will stay strong together," one of the families reportedly said to the press, just before the meeting began.
