Remembering Eyal Yifrah

A year after Eyal Yifrah was murdered, his parents Iris and Uri and their extended families visited Ziv Medical Center in order to bring a smile to the patients hospitalized in Ziv's Pediatric and Orthopedic Departments and support their families, as their son Eyal believed in doing during his short lift time. Eyal was one of three Israeli teens abducted while hitchhiking from their Yeshiva to their homes in June 2014 and murdered by the terrorists.
The three victims, Naftali Frenkel, Gilad Shaer and Eyal Yifrah were buried side by side, with thousands of Israelis gathering to pay their respects to the boys and their families. During the funeral Eyal’s father Uri spoke of the special love his son had for all people. Addressing his deceased child, he said, “your mother said you’d whisper in God’s ear and ask him to give us strength. It will be hard without you, you were holy in your life; you gave strength to so many people, now give us strength here at home.”
