A special women's event was held at Binyanei HaUma Monday, in honor of the 20th anniversary of the death of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson.

The event was attended by famous Israeli musicians Eviatar Banai and Michi Yosefi.

As the event progressed, rumors began to reach the audience that the bodies of abducted teenagers Naftali Frenkel (16), Gilad Sha'ar (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) had been found. 

Once the gag order broke, Master of Ceremonies Sivan Rahav Meir took the stage and announced, "Unfortunately, the rumors this evening are true. The news we have not wanted to hear for two weeks has been published."

Immediately, the "Popular Orchestra" present at the event began to play the Alter Rebbe's "Four Tunes" niggun, or melody, in honor of the boys.
