Naftali’s mother addresses the UN

Racheli Fraenkel, Naftali’s mother, addressed the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva this morning.

The family gave permission for this video to be shared:

Please continue to daven and recite Tehilim for our boys - Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah (Fraenkel), Gil-Ad Michael ben Bat-Galim (Sha’ar), and Eyal ben Iris Teshurah (Yifrach) - and also for the IDF forces who are working around the clock to rescue them.

May we soon be privileged to enjoy besurot tovot, yeshu’ot v’nechamot (good tidings, salvation, and consolation).


  1. Terribly upsetting. A friend said on Facebook that other speeches in the U.N. were infuriating, blaming Israel. What an institution. At least they gave Racheli Frankel the podium for those few minutes.

    1. Yes, she and the other poor mothers had to sit there while speaker after speaker made outrageous allegations and cruelly and heartlessly bashed Israel.
