Hundreds of residents of the Gush Etzion bloc of Judean Jewish communities south of Jerusalem have scheduled a march and prayer gathering in memory of the three teens who were abducted and murdered on June 12th.

The march will start at 2:30 p.m. at the Gush Etzion Junction, where Chairman Ze'ev Elkin of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee will speak. Prayers and the reading of Psalms will follow at the hitchhiking post where the abduction took place. At 3:15 p.m. there will be a memorial gathering at the Alon Shevut Junction, featuring Chairman Davidi Perl of the Gush Etzion Regional Council, rabbis and other public figures. From there, buses will go to the teens' funeral in Modiin.
