Dear Elder Oaks,

I heard from Rabbi Boteach that you are helping those trying to obtain a pardon for Jonathan Pollard.

I think the time has come, for humanitarian reasons, to allow Mr. Pollard to join his family and, as is his wish, to go to Israel. I am sure that your intervention, and that of many others, will be fruitful.

Best Wishes,

Elie Wiesel
