From Rabbi Yablok: "Dear YA Family, It is with a heavy heart that I write these words. Our hopes and prayers were focused on the safe return of our three brothers missing in Israel yet we have received the terrible news that they have instead been returned to our Father in Heaven. The period before burial is traditionally known as anninut and it is uniquely typified by the absence of any ritual or mitzvah performance. One explanation for this period emphasizes the need for time to feel. We are encouraged by Halacha to focus on the family we have lost and allow ourselves to experience all of the emotions that we are feeling. We are all struggling to process this terrible tragedy and must allow ourselves to experience the full range of our emotions throughout the mourning process. The mothers of these young men constantly pointed to tremendous unity they witnessed while the search for their children was underway. We cried, prayed and hoped together with them as if the missing children were our own. Just as we joined together in prayer and hope, we must continue to support each other and carry this tremendous sense of unity throughout the mourning process. I have been contacted by a number of students looking for some words of comfort and support and am eager to connect with any others looking for the same. I am heartened by our community's collective sense of compassion and encourage everyone to continue to talk with each other, show our support to the grieving families and promote the unity which the three brave mothers desired. May we all find comfort in the difficult days ahead and share in only good news from this day forward. Sincerely, RY"
