Gilad is Free!
It's a happy/apprehensive/sad day for Kelal Yisrael.
On the other hand, many are apprehensive that terrorists are being freed and saddened that justice was not done properly to them. May אל נקמות ה' take care of that part of the deal.
And during this חג האסיף, while Hashem is gathering His children from captivity, may He also gather the other Jewish captives back, such as:
- Jonathan Pollard
- Sholom Rubashkin
- Alan Gross
- Jacob Ostreicher
- Yaakov Yosef Gruenwald
