Pollard anniversary marked by letter-writing, praying

The Free Pollard campaign marked the 27th anniversary of Israeli agent Jonathan Pollard's arrest on the civil calendar Wednesday by urging people around the world to write him letters of encouragement.
The campaign expressed hope that US president Barack Obama would decide to commute Pollard's life sentence to time served during the traditional holiday pardon season in the United States that begins with Thursday's Thanksgiving holiday and continues through Christmas.
Pollard's wife Esther marked the day by praying for her husband's release at the Western Wall. The letter writing campaign will continue Thursday, which is the anniversary of Pollard's arrest on the Jewish calendar.
