Vigil for Gilad Shalit

Vigil for Gilad Shalit

Plan a Program in your Community

A photo which appeared in the Los Angeles Times recently showed a tent on a sidewalk in Jerusalem reminding passers-by of the number of days Gilad Shalit has been held.

March 21 will mark 1,000 days of captivity for Gilad Shalit. Join in the international effort to secure his release, by raising awareness and remembering him.
