Migdal Ha’emek Chief Rabbi Yisrael Dovid Grossman Shlita visited the last bachur released last week by Japanese authorities, to complete his prison term in Israel.
Escorted by Israel Police, the young prisoner arrived last week and has since been placed in the Torah Wing of Nitzan Prison, where he will be in a frum environment, permitted to complete his sentence while davening, learning and eating kosher food.
The rav met with other prisoners in the Torah Wing, speaking with each one privately, seeking to give them chizuk ahead of Rosh Hashanah.
Rabbonim during Elul visit the Torah Wing and give shiurim for the benefit of prisoners.
