Solidarity with the Families of the Missing Soldiers

Whereas we, the Board of Governors of The Jewish Agency, which represents the Jewish people and its communities and institutions worldwide, express our love and support for the IDF soldiers standing guard over the State of Israel by land, air and sea; and

Whereas two IDF soldiers, Lieutenant Hadar Goldin of the Givati Brigade and Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul of the Golani Brigade, are missing and have been in the hands of the Hamas terror organization since Operation Protective Edge in the summer of 2014; and

Whereas two Israeli civilians, Avera Mangistu and Hisham Al-Sayed, have been held captive by Hamas since they disappeared in the Gaza strip.

Therefore be it resolved:
We call on the entire Jewish people to express their full support and love for the families of the missing soldiers and the families of the two civilians held in Gaza, in their struggle to return their loved ones to the State of Israel.

We express our support for the Israeli government's efforts to find ways to end this painful affair and to return the sons to their borders, and we hope that these efforts will soon bear fruit.

The Board of Governors:
- Calls upon Jewish communities and organizations worldwide to raise awareness of the families’ pain, and to find ways to express solidarity with, and support of, their struggle.

- Calls on all governments of goodwill to become involved in this important humanitarian mission, and to assist in efforts to bring the two missing soldiers, Lieutenant Hadar Goldin and Staff Sergeant Oron Shaul, and the two civilians being held in Gaza, Avera Mangistu and Hisham Al-Sayed, back to the borders of the State of Israel.
