THE POLLARDS ARRIVE HOME AT LONG LAST
Jonathan and Esther Pollard after Jonathan’s release from prison.
I am honored to be counted by Esther and Jonathan among their close friends during our more than thirty years of friendship and support; and it is with tears of joy that I exclaim MAZAL TOV!

Welcome Home, Jonathan
Jonathan Pollard deserves Israel’s eternal gratitude as well as its remorse for how long it took to bring him home.

This day was a very long time coming—decades in the making. The years of Jonathan’s imprisonment, and later his release under restrictions that did not allow him to leave New York, were excruciatingly long. While his spirit never faltered and his Jewish pride never waned, his body weakened.
WISHING ALL OUR FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS A BETTER YEAR TO COME!
BLESSED WITH GOOD HEALTH AND PARNASSA.
