At the same time, it has been announced that the prestigious Jerusalem
Conference – to be held at the same time in the Hyatt Hotel in Jerusalem -
will award its “Lover of Zion” award to Jonathan Pollard. His wife Esther
will receive it on his behalf. The award and the march are just the latest
manifestations of the increasing public recognition in Israel of Pollard’s
contribution to Israeli security and of his plight. They follow the
bestowing of an award to Pollard by the Torah and Land Institute at its
annual conference last month in Bar Ilan University, honorary citizenships
in Bat Yam, Beit El, Gush Katif, Kiryat Arba and other localities, and more.
