Jewish Communities Pray for the Return of Gilad Shalit

Last Wednesday, approximately 100 Jewish communities from around North America marked their solidarity with the Shalit family and prayed for the safe return of Gilad Shalit.

Bnei Akiva, working together with various community leaders, organized a worldwide “rally” for Gilad Shalit, with the goal being to hold the ceremony at the same time in all 100 communities.
