On behalf of the entire ZOA Board, members, staff, and supporters, we are thrilled that Jonathan Pollard will finally be a free man. This is a well-deserved measure of justice after a justice system and numerous individuals betrayed Jonathan with a monstrously unjust sentence.
Jonathan is a religious Jew and ardent Zionist who called me (Mort Klein) dozens of times while in prison. In all of these calls, he never discussed his situation or asked me to help him. Jonathan only wanted to discuss what ZOA could do to help Israel. He was extraordinarily intelligent, and incredibly knowledgeable and well informed about the Arab/Islamic war against Israel and the West. We pray for his and his wife’s health and well-being. We wish them well as they pursue the next chapter of their lives in freedom.
