ACCOLADES ABOUT ESTHER
A heroic woman in the tradition of Judaism’s great heroines; learned, modest, virtuous, dedicated to her faith, and unrelenting warrior for justice for Jonathan.
JONATHAN POLLARD SENT THE PRESS A LETTER EXPRESSING APPRECIATION TO HIS WIFE FOR HER SUPPORT.
"Thirty years ago, my beloved wife Esther found her way into USP Marion, the highest security prison in the United States, where I was languishing in a dungeon cell three stories underground behind 13 locks and keys," he said. "Esther reached out and cut the shackles off of my heart and restored my soul to life. That is when the fight for my freedom began in earnest. Fast forward 35 years. Today, Esther, fearlessly cut the GPS device off of my wrist, restoring me to almost complete freedom." Read Press Release.
Throughout the years I have been privileged to be among those Esther calls ‘family”.
Irving Weisdorf joins me in wishing Esther and Jonathan, health, happiness, and blessings throughout their lives.
