One of the Hebrew names for Passover is Hag haHeruth, the Holiday of Freedom. One Israeli soldier spends his third Hag Heruth in captivity in Gaza. Like last year, during this year's Seder many Jewish families in Israel and in the Galuth will save not only a place and cup for the prophet Eliyahu - who symbolizes future redemption - but also for Gilad Shalit. Let's hope and pray that for the family of Gilad Shalit this will be the last Pesach without their son, grandson, and brother.
