NY Triplets Named Gilad, Naftali and Eyal


UPDATE: This story may not be true. We are trying to confirm it one way or the other.

A Jewish family in New York has honored the memory of Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Sha’ar and Naftali Fraenkel by naming triplets after the yeshiva students who were kidnapped and murdered by Palestinian “freedom fighters” on June 12.

At a brit (circumcision) ceremony Wednesday, the babies were named: Eyal Yosef, Gil-ad Menachem and Naftali Chaim one day after their namesakes were laid to rest – accompanied by 150,000 Israelis.

  37. Not sure if I would want to impose the sad history of three kids’ death on my own three triplets. It sounds like a nice thing to do – but it is dragging a sad event and dumping it on three children who have noting to do with it. This is mixing the fates of six different souls.

    שלישיית דדון
    http://www.ynet.co.il
    זו היתה לידה נדירה: שלישייה זהה, שנוצרה בהריון ספונטני. כפיר, לביא ואיתן נולדו בשבוע ה-26 להריון, ומשקלם הכולל היה פחות מ-2.5 ק”ג. בחודשים האחרונים ליווינו את מיטל דדון ובעלה שלומי במסע הארוך ושמענו מהם על ההחייאות בפגיה, השגרה השוחקת ואיך מאכילים שלושה תינוקות שרעבים באותו זמן? הסיפור המלא – במוסף…

  43. If you have ANY corroborating info, (*including the names of both parents) then please post.

    I have seen a lot of information out there that would lead to the undeniable conclusion that this story was all fantasy of a young lady who posted on her facebook page that an "aunt of a friend" named her children after the victims, a status which went viral.

    If I am wrong, PLEASE let me know.

    I would LOVE to see my information proved wrong.

  44. I did research as well along with plenty of other people and it looks like we are all on the same page…I posted almost the same thing a few hours ago (without knowing who you were or your conclusions)…teenage kids who wanted to play a "lets see if this can go viral"…

  45. May The Lord Our God Bless them with abundant Life , Happiness, and Health .

  46. Joel Gordon says:

    I saw it on Facebook it was Shira Reich boys.

  47. Simon Green says:

    As much as I wish this was true.

    Unfortunately this appears to be fake, which The Jewish Press and others got sucked into, by someone playing on our emotions at this time.

    NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!
