Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin (Likud) sent a letter signed by all the Jewish political party leaders to US President Barack Obama to free convicted Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard from jail on Wednesday, after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu refused to take the letter with him a month and a half ago during his visit to the US.
