Yankee and Binah have added their page to our long suffering but also beautifully bright family album. You see, darkness murders innocent children and then names public squares after the murderers. We name our children after the innocent that were murdered. No, Yankee and Binah never met the three precious souls, but being deeply connected to them on a soul level, they didnt have to meet them. They are a part of us. Ayal, Gilad and Naftali are a part or our spiritual DNA. Such is the life of those who are privileged to be part of our family. The… Read more »

Mazel tov! My name is Randy I live in Ontario, Canada. Our son Chaim Tzvi attends Yeshiva Mir in Jerusalem and lives with our daughter in law and granddaughter. I need your help to share with as many people I would be grateful. I am working with Dani Abell (relative) who lives in the same community as Naftali Frankel one of the murdered boys. I am trying to get as many people to participate in our Letters of Love Project. As the families of the three kidnapped and murdered boys conclude the shiva period, they begin the painful transition to… Read more »

What a beautiful expression of a truly a touching sentiment. I guess at some point a nickname will evolve that will include snippets of all 3 of these beautiful names, otherwise some part of the baby’s long name will likely not be used. That would defeat the purpose of this naming and would really be a shame.
Much yiddisheh and chassidisheh nachas.

please don't call them martyrs

comment No. 1 called the boys “martyrs”. This is what those rishusdige arabs call their children who blow themselves to bits.
These boys are tzadikim who were nifter al kiddush hashem

We’ve been calling kedoshim “martyrs” for many decades now, and there is nothing wrong with that word. The Moslems also say G-d is great, should we not use that phrase any more?
