“I am saddened to learn of the reports that Aharon Sofer’s body was found,” said Congressman Chris Smith (NJ-04), who represents Lakewood, N.J., Aharon’s hometown. “This is an extremely difficult time for his family and friends, and they are in our prayers. I would also like to thank the Israeli government for its assistance in the search.”
Cong. Smith has been updated by the State Department, family and advocates in Lakewood over the course of the day.
