WHERE: Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun, 125 East 85th Street, NYC

The community is invited to a memorial service at 12:00 noon on Thursday, March 17th for the victims of the barbaric Itamar massacre. Five members of the Fogel family, including Ruth Fogel (35), Udi Fogel (36.5), Elad (4), Yoav (11) and Hadas (3 months), were brutally murdered in their sleep on Friday night. Everyone must speak out for these victims of inhuman terror and against the continuing incitement against Israel and the Jewish people.

The memorial is co-sponsored by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, the Consulate General of Israel in New York and the Jewish Community Relations Council of New York (list in formation).

Media coverage is invited.
