Background Ehud (Udi) Goldwasser, Eldad Regev and Gilad Shalit, remain in the hands of terroroists - alone and cut off from everything they have ever known. It was our hope that by now they would be home safe with their families, but these brave young men continue to be held by their captors. None of us can stand idly by when we have a chance to raise our voices on their behalf and in concert with the voices of their families.
