From the SFJCF:

Dear Friends,

A 15 year old Jewish child is missing in San Francisco. We need your help to find her.

Please open this flyer her family has created and forward it to friends and family. Print it out, distribute it and do whatever you can.

Pray for speedy safe reunion with her family,

Rabbi Marvin Goodman, JCF Rabbi in Residence
Whoever saves a single life, it is as if he/she had saved the whole world.“– Mishneh, Sanhedrin 4:5

כל המציל נפש אחת, כאילו הציל עולם ומלואו.” — על פי מסכת סנהדרין, פרק ד”

The saftety of Emily and concern for her family will be in the hearts of all of us at Oy Bay over this Shabbat, and until Emily is found.

May it be your will, L-rd our G-d and G-d of our ancestors, to guide us in peace, to sustain us in peace, and to bring us home in peace.

[UPDATE]: I received the following message at 10 AM on Fri., Nov. 16:

Thanks for sending out this important message — Emily has been found and is now

safe at home with her family. I work for a Jewish org. that has been very involved in this case, so I can say for sure.

Thanks again,



Apparently someone in the SF area saw Emily, became concerned about her, searched the internet and found she was a runaway. She back in St. Louis.

Every once in awhile, the heart of the universe opens to prayer and acts of kindness. Thanks to all of the Angels that are part of this wonderful network of caring people across the country, Emily Graeber is on her way home.
The Graebers are so grateful for all that you have done and were willing to do for their family. I cannot say enough about the support of the Shawn Hornbeck Foundation.
Please continue to keep the Graebers in your prayers.
