A grassroots gathering on behalf of Gilad Shalit is scheduled to get underway in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv at 7:15PM on Monday night. Some of the organizers explain the effort is not sponsored by an organization, but by people concerned over the soldier’s plight, wishing to do something now, during the Aseres Y’mei Tshuva.
The gathering will include some form of slichos, as well as speeches and it is being publicized on the radio in the hope of attracting a large audience. Among the participants will be the father of IDF soldier Ehud Goldwasser HY”D, whose body was returned to Israel in a prisoner exchange deal with Hizbullah.
