Hundreds of people gathered at the Gush Etzion intersection Monday night, in a show of prayer, mourning, and solidarity for murdered teens Gilad Sha'ar (16), Eyal Yifrah (19), and Naftali Frenkel (16), hy"d. 

Arutz Sheva spoke to one protestor late Monday, who tried to define the emotions and thoughts that caused many people to turn up for the vigil. 

"We are gathered together, people from all over Gush Etzion - from Neve Daniel, Efrat, Alon Shvut, Elazar, Kfar Etzion," Devorah Sharf stated. 

"Teenagers, grownups, children - we're all here together, we're all crying, we're lighting candles - it's a very difficult moment, very difficult," she continued. "We were hoping for a better outcome."
