A group of young activists called "Youth for Pollard" kicked off a new initiative to popularly rename the park across the street from the Prime Minister's residence in Jerusalem as "Pollard Park."

The organization plans on holding weekly protests at 4:00 on Mondays to call for Jonathan Pollard's release from prison in the United States, where he has been held for the past 25 years.

The park, located at 37 Gaza Street, doesn't currently have a name, according to the protest organizers. "Every park should have a name, so we've decided to give this park a name in honor of Jonathan Pollard," said Youth for Pollard member Omer Ben Avraham.
