Huffington Post has an article about Jewish voices who stand with Presbyterians who support divestment from certain companies doing business in Israel. At the end of the article are videos of Jewish men and women who support divestment. The first features a man who is a graduate of the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. He has a blog which was updated on June 17th with a post about Jewish support of divestment. A June 13th post is about the same topic. A June 1st post is about destroyed tree groves. A post about uniting in prayer for the three youths is sadly absent.
A post which does reflect concern for the three teens can be found at Chabad.org under the title Mitzvot for the Israeli Students.
