Metzger: Keep Praying for Captives and Missing

In spite of the return of Gilad Shalit, the imminent return of Ilan Grapel and the anticipated return of Odeh Tarabin, Ashkenazic Chief Rabbi Yonah Metzger called on Israelis, Thursday, not to stop praying for captive and missing-in-action Israelis.

Rabbi Metzger has composed a new prayer for Jonathan Pollard, as Pollard nears the end of his 26th year behind bars in the United States since being arrested for passing classified information to Israel.
