As the search continues for Eyal Yifrcah, Gilad Shaer, and Naftali Fraenkel, the three yeshiva students kidnapped by Palestinian terrorists Thursday night, the social media campaign to raise awareness for the three missing boys has inspired hope and prayers in the global community.

Launched by the University of Haifa Ambassadors Network, the hashtag #BringBackOurBoys has gone viral, receiving up to 4,600 tweets per hour according to, a media analytics website.

“Bring Back Our Boys” Facebook page has been growing steadily, with nearly 90,000 likes since Friday.

Also a growing bevy of Israeli stars and sports figures are signing on to a Twitter hashtag campaign calling for the return of three Israeli youths kidnapped, among them are: model Natalie Dadon, singer Shai Gabso, guitarist Avi Singolda, basketball player Omri Casspi.

Singers Naftali Kalfa and Gad Elbaz wasted no time in releasing a song, “Bring Back Our Boys,” dedicated to Eyal Yifrcah, Gilad Shaer, and Naftali Fraenkel

The clip features the famous phrase “and the children shall return to their own borders,” from the Book of Jeremiah, Chapter 31.

Orthodox Union, with its international youth movement, NCSY, and its Department of Community Engagement and Synagogue Services, in partnership with Bnei Akiva and the Rabbinical Council of America (RCA), has launched a “virtual vigil” – an around-the-clock schedule of learning, prayer, and mitzvot, performed by OU/NCSY members and partners throughout the world.  It is the hope of all involved that through these earnest efforts in the merit of  Gilad Michoel ben Bat Galim, Yaakov Naftali ben Rachel Devorah and Eyal ben Iris Teshura, Hashem will see fit to bring them home safely and quickly.

If you are interested in participating  go to Virtual Vigil: Bring Back Our Boys website.
