Today I visited the families of the kidnapped soldiers from the Gaza War. They were in a tent opposite the Prime Minister's House in Jerusalem.
I spent time with the parents of kidnapped soldier Oron Shaul to express our solidarity with them and to pray for the release of their son and the release of Hadar Goldin.
I comforted them with words of blessings and consolation from the Lubavitcher Rebbe.
Oron’s brother took time out from planning future steps to help bring home his brother. He came over to me and asked to put on tefillin. Afterwards, he told me that he is going to put on tefillin every day from now in the merit of bringing Oron home. His words touched me deeply.
We pray for the release of kidnapped soldiers Oron Shaul and Hadar Goldin.
