The Fight For Jonathan Pollard Goes On

JewishPress Logo

Most of those convicted of spying for enemies of the U.S. have received sentences that were equal to the time already served by Pollard. Marian Zacharski, a spy for Poland who received a life sentence, served only four years.

It was difficult to hold back the tears when I realized last week that Pollard would not be granted clemency. For a moment I thought all our work was for naught. I realized, however, that for more than 2,000 years, at the end of the Pesach seder and the end of Yom Kippur, Jews of all persuasions have been saying “L’shana haba’a b’Yerushalayim” – Next year in Jerusalem.

Though we still wait, we do not give up. The campaign to free Jonathan Pollard will continue. Let us not lose our momentum and let us not lose our unity.
