Shalom all,

I want to remind you that today is the Tweet4Shalit event. So please tweet for the release of Gilad Shalit and use the hashtag “#GiladShalit” in your tweets. Read all about it here.

After Gilad’s capture, his family published a book with a short story he wrote when he was 11 years old. It’s called (loosely translated) “When the shark and the fish first met“. Ironically, it’s a story about peace between enemies.

Here is a video clip of people reading the story in different languages:

If you liked the story, and have children, you can download a PDF file (Here) which has the story printed next to blank boxes for your children to draw in.

The finished product can be sent to .
