Rabbi Yitzhak Kadouri, leading kabbalist, who passed away in Jerusalem
tonight, at the age of more than 100 years old, made a final request to
President George Bush in recent months: free Jonathan Pollard.

In his request to Bush to free Pollard, Rabbi Kadouri reminded the American
president of the of Biblical injuction: “What does the Lord require of you,
but to do justice, love mercy, and to walk humbly with your G-d.” Kadouri
assured Bush that both he and America would be blessed for this righteous

J4JP joins the People of Israel in calling upon President Bush to do
“chessed shel emet” for Rabbi Kadouri by honoring his final request and
sending Jonathan Pollard home to Israel. Pollard can be here in time to
comfort the mourners during the week of shiva which will take place in
Jerusalem following the funeral tomorrow.

According to Pollard’s wife Esther, ‘”There could be no finer tribute to
Rabbi Kadouri and no more lasting credit to his memory, than to have
Jonathan Pollard sent home and the mitzvah of pidyan shvuyim thus fulfilled
in Kadour!i’s merit!”
