Standing Up for the Hostages

The Board continues to organise a number of activities to advocate for the release of the hostages, from large gatherings outside 10 Downing Street, to digital campaigns, our #SederSeatForAHostage campaign over Pesach, speaking tours and joint events with survivors and hostage families, and with the Hostages and Missing Families Forum, and communal partners.

Due to the General Election, we held our last vigil of this Parliament on Wednesday, the 29th of May. We will continue to advocate for the hostages through other events and activities that we will announce in the coming weeks.
