Re: "Pidyan Shvuyim": Redemption of a Captive
To all our Jewish brethren, wherever they may be:
The difficult plight of Jonathan Pollard is well known and publicized. He is enduring an usually harsh and severe sentence.
It is a mitzvah incumbent upon every Jew to make efforts to free him from his imprisonment; those who can should write letters to the government, and whoever can intercede on his behalf should do so.
In the merit of this great Mitzvah of "Pidyan Shvuyim" (Redemption of a Captive), may all who take part be abundantly blessed by the One Who Frees the Imprisoned.
