Bnei Akiva Pray for Pollard


Dozens of yeshivas and girls' high schools in the Bnei Akiva religious youth movement were scheduled to hold simultaneous prayers, beginning at noon Tuesday, for the release of Jonathan Pollard, serving a life sentence in the United States for passing classified information to Israel.

Rabbi Chaim Druckman, who heads the Bnei Akiva Center, is scheduled to take part in the prayers at the Beit Midrash of the Bnei Akiva yeshiva in Sde Ya'akov, broadcast live at the other institutions and on Arutz Sheva's Hebrew website.
