Rabbi Pesach Lerner: We Must Continue Helping Pollard

Yeshiva World News - January 22, 2009

Dear Friends,

On behalf of Jonathan Pollard, thank you for your efforts on his behalf.

Your letters, faxes and phone calls to the white house were a powerful tool and an important chizzuk, source of encouragement. Your tefillos, prayers on his behalf, were and are very special.

Although, President Bush did not grant Jonathan clemency, our efforts must continue.


- keep davening for the health and freedom of Yehonathan ben Malka [Pollard]
- please write him letters, letters of support, of chizuk, of divrei torah.

Jonathan refers to these letters as his "oxygen".
The letters can be from adults and children, from families and school classes. Please be sure the letters are written in English only. Please just send him letters, no enclosures (tapes, gifts, etc). Please choose one day each week, make that your day, each week, to write another letter. Ask your family members and friends to do the same.

Please send the letters to:
