Gilad Shalit — 5 Years Away From Home

Aviva Shalit -- how much longer before her son comes home to her?

My heart just aches for Aviva Shalit.  Her son, Gilad, was kidnapped by Hamas five years ago yesterday in a cross-border raid.  For the last five years Aviva has gone to bed every night wondering about the safety of her son.  She’s gone to bed, but I doubt she sleeps.

As a mother myself I cannot imagine how she goes on, knowing that her baby is out there, somewhere, wanting to come home, and he can’t.  Mothers all over the world offer up a silent prayer for her every day. 

If he were your baby?

Last year, on the fourth anniversary of his kidnapping, I asked you all to say a special prayer for Gilad

This coming Friday night please light an extra candle for Gilad and please say the following tehillim (Psalms):

פרקים: כ’ ב”ד קכ  ק”ל קמ”ב

Chapters 20, 24, 121, 130 and 142

Let the extra candle that we light bring some light to his life and return him to his family safely and speedily in our days.

Ve’shavu banim legvulam ושבו בנים לגבולם And thy children shall return to their own border
