The Jewish Agency for Israel mourns the death of Ezra Schwartz, a student at Yeshivat Ashreinu in Beit Shemesh and a participant in Masa Israel Journey, who was murdered in Thursday’s Palestinian Authority terror attack in Gush Etzion.
Jewish Agency chairman Natan Sharansky spoke to Ezra’s family and expressed deep condolences on behalf of The Jewish Agency. He also offered any and all assistance to the family during this trying time.
He said: “Ezra came to Israel not only to study but also to be a part of the vibrant Israeli experience. This makes his death even more tragic.”
