In a recent letter to Esther Pollard Rav Eliyahu wrote:
"After all of the efforts I have made, and others have made, whether here in the Land or abroad to free your husband Jonathan, (May his light shine bright), it appears to me that the only thing to do is to hold a massive prayer rally at the Kotel HaMaaravi (or at Maarat HaMachpela in Hebron) and turn to the Creator of the World to pray for him, that we should merit to see you and Jonathan here in Eretz Yisrael building your home.
We should not rely on officials such as these or others. We must turn to the One Who Resides On High and with our prayers tunnel a channel beneath His Throne of Glory so that the voice of our prayers to free the one who has done so much for Am Yisrael will be heard.
May it be His will that you and Jonathan will yet this year merit to be in the Land and build your family here in Eretz Yisrael! Amain ken yihi ratzon!"
