A Chanukah Blessing

Last year, and for too many years before that, we were lighting Chanukah candles in his name, praying that somehow he might come home alive.

This year he can light for himself.

Welcome home, Gilad.

I have not seen that photo, before.

I take it that this is a recent photo after his release?

I do not know about you guys, but my first thought on seeing the footage of his release, was that this is a guy who looks like he just walked Auschwitz.

I hope that he puts on some weight, but G-d only knows what his mental state must be like.

Israel Thrives

Yes, this is new, from a couple of nights ago. He already looks better than he did on his release. Too thin, but he has some more color.
