Twelve-year-old Tamar Fogel, whose parents and three siblings were murdered at their Itamar home in March, paid a condolence call to Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard last week at his North Carolina jail cell.

Pollard finished sitting shiva for his father Morris who died last Saturday.

Fogel was touched when Pollard had sent teddy bears to her and her two surviving siblings when they were sitting shiva.

Pollard's wife, who delivered them, said that she had a similar bear and that when she missed her husband, she hugged the bear, so the children could do the same when they thought of their parents.

American authorities, who did not let Pollard out of jail to attend his father's funeral, permitted Fogel's visit.
