When I was in prison, the guards enjoyed humiliating me when they asked me if I thought That I will ever get home. And I always answered in the same way: "I would ask, do you believe in G-d? And most of them would say yes, and then I would ask do you think G-d can work miracles? And they would say clear, well here we are. The same story applies to this Torah, I will ask you if you believe in G-d, and you will say yes, and I will ask if you believe in miracles, and then say yes, in this Torah we will use not only us but also our future generations, so we must all give the same promise "For the Torah scroll, we promise to bring this Torah scroll regularly to Joseph's tomb, and to see that it is used every day, and that it is used with respect, the people of our people in our Promised Land."The head of the Shomron Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, said that "Like Yosef the Tzaddik, our brother Yonatan was in the pit, because he stood by his values, like Yosef the Tzaddik, our brother Yonatan was released, like Yosef the Tzaddik "Ours and our commitment to Yosef the Tzaddik, who must also come out of captivity, regain control here and wave the Israeli flag over the grave."In his actions, Pollard saved the people of Israel and paid a very heavy personal price for it. We very much appreciate and cherish the work of Pollard and his wife Esther for the people of Israel. By their brethren. Everything that is said and everything that is done for him is nothing compared to the price he paid for the whole people of Israel "Rabbi Lebanon: "Thanks to Yosef the Tzaddik, his right protects all the people of Israel and the Land of Israel, Moshiach Ben Yosef will end his role and from there we will reach Moshiach Ben David soon. Welcome to the Pollard family to the Samaria family.Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu: "It is written: Out of the house of the forbidden came the king, if my father, peace be upon him, was now with us, Jonathan would bless you, from the house of the forbidden came the king. May there be a desire soon in our day Amen"(Translation from Source)
