From the Kerem Shalom Crossing to Gaza to the Knesset: Under the banner of “Hadar’s Race”, a ceremony was held in the Knesset’s Chagall Lounge with the participation of Speaker Yuli Edelstein.
In the presence of Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and the Chairman of the Lobby for the Return of Soldiers, MK Shuli Muallem and members of the Goldin family, the ceremony was held on Sunday, 3 Adar.
The race organized by the Hadar-Prat pre-army Mechina located in Kibbutz Sufah in the Gaza envelope, dedicated in the memory of Hadar Goldin, to bring his plight back to the public discourse as well as the plight of other soldiers who fought for the state and remained in the enemy’s hands.
Speaker Edelstein stated, “I am less thrilled over the reason that brought you all here, but it is good to see young people such as yourselves in Knesset, bringing a renewed spirit to the nation…”
Edelstein continued that we pray for the return of Goldin’s body from Hamas along with the remains of Sgt. Oren Shaul.
