VIDEO: Baby named after Israeli teens killed

A newborn in Brooklyn was named after the three Israeli teens who were recently killed.

Eyal Gilad Naftali is just shy of 2 weeks old, but he already represents so much for the Jewish faith. On Monday at the newborn's bris, which is the Jewish ritual for circumcision, the baby was named in honor of the three Yeshiva students who were kidnapped in Israel and killed a few weeks ago.
