Electrifying Prayer with Esther Pollard at Mearat HaMachpela
Esther (quoting HaRav Mordechai Eliyahu ztvk"l): "Jonathan's dire condition mirrors that of the Land and People of Israel."
WIG Media Release - September 15, 2011
[Women in Green]: More than five hundred women went to Hebron two days ago, Tuesday September 13, "to meet the King in the field" in the middle of the month of Elul, to summon the Patriarchs and the Matriarchs for prayer from the depths of the heart, for the release of Jonathan Pollard and to strengthen Eretz Israel. (below you will find a link to the must-see video clip about it)
One after the other, the buses arrived from throughout Israel. The women and girls left the buses to climb the steps of the Cave of Machpelah and the steps of prayer.
The prayer that Esther Pollard uttered in the Cave of Machpela reached the gates of Heaven and the chambers of the heart, and tears could be seen in many an eye.
Esther spoke very emotionally about Jonathan's condition as reflecting the condition of the people of Israel and the land of Israel. Of course, Esther spoke about Jonathan's medical state, and his need for health and redemption.
The women spent the remainder of the evening in the Machpela Visitors' Center at the foot of the Cave. First, Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar screened a film on the daily struggle for the redemption of lands that is being waged by the Women in Green movement on the hills of Judea. Afterwards, the women enjoyed the singing by Odelia Berlin and Keren Golan. Karni Eldad spontaneously joined the performance.
The evening concluded with dancing and singing full of hope and prayer for the release of Jonathan Pollard and the other Prisoners of Zion, and with the hope that in the new year the people of Israel will dwell in the full width and breadth of its land, safely and securely.
The entire event was organized by the Women for Israel's Tomorrow- Women in Green movement, in cooperation with the Machpela Visitors' Center and the Jerusalem District of the Torah Culture Division.
