I am heartbroken to hear the news of the tragic murder of four young Israeli soldiers today by an East-Jerusalem Arab. These sweet, innocent young adults had the rest of their lives ahead of them. And in one moment of insanity, a crazy terrorist decided to cut short four lives and injure dozens more. You can read the full story here.
We at the Beams mourn for the loss of our beloved soldiers. May Hashem avenge their martyred blood.

What is the message Hashem is trying to send us through such needless violence? Well, I can't speak for anyone else but myself, but for me, the message is clear: either we can live al kiddush Hashem, or we can die al kiddush Hashem. There is no in between.
May The Almighty comfort their families among the mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.
