From the Desk - Hadar Goldin


Shalom Friends! I hope you are enjoying the Summer. I am on leave at the moment but felt it important to send out a letter this week about Hadar Goldin. In August 2014, Hamas terrorists ambushed three Israeli soldiers from a terror tunnel located in the basement of a house in Gaza. The terrorists killed two of the soldiers and shot Hadar Goldin, dragging him into a tunnel in order to kidnap him. Hadar did not survive this attempted kidnapping. Hadar's body remains in captivity in Gaza. Hamas is also holding the remains of Oron Shaul, a fellow IDF soldier who was killed in Operation Protective Edge. The Goldin and Shaul families have experienced the unspeakable pain of not only losing a beloved son in war, but the additional agony of not being able to bury his body in their home towns where their sons were raised. These families have committed themselves to recovering the bodies of their sons and giving them the decent burial that they deserve in Israel. The Goldin family and the Hadar Goldin Foundation are asking you for the support of the worldwide Jewish community in building an international movement that will pressure Hamas to return their son and Oron Shaul for burial in Israel.
