“.. המקום ירחם עליהם ויוציאם מצרה לרוחה ומאפלה לאורה

ומשעבוד לגאולה..”

A note from Joe Strauss:The Shalit family temporary residence (it looks a bit like a sukkah.) in which the family maintains a constant vigil, calling attention to Gilad’s plight on an ongoing basis, is located just across the street from the Prime Minister’s residence, a few blocks from our home in Jerusalem. We will print off this announcement and, together with Amit, will take this to the Shalit family, so they will become aware of your wonderful efforts in St. Louis, ½ a world away, and yet so close... Chodesh tov, and Shabbat shalom, Joe
