Bnei Akiva Students Rally for Pollard's Release

Members of the Bnei Akiva youth movement held a demonstration for the release of Jewish-American prisoner Jonathan Pollard. They coordinated their rally with the holiday of Tu Bishvat, planting seedlings in a open area near a school. They held homemade signs with the Biblical quote "veshavu banim legulam / And your children shall return to their own borders" and a sign reading "Jonathan Come Home."

Pollard was sentenced to life in prison for passing classified information to Israel that dealt with Arab chemical and biological weapons capabilities.
