A delegation from Keren Hayesod-UIA on Sunday visited the family of Naftali Frenkel, one of the three teenagers kidnapped by Hamas terrorists.

“The message that I got from the mother of Naftali Frenkel is a message of love, a message of peace and a message of unity,” said Yohanna Arbib-Perugia, outgoing chair of Keren Hayesod’s world board of trustees.

“I came here to bring my strength, but I came out of this meeting with Naftali’s mother strengthened by her love, by her faith, by her commitment to the Jewish people,” she added.

“One message that struck me from her was when she said, ‘May this incident be good to the people of Israel, bring unity to the Jewish people,” said Arbib-Perugia.
