Mother of American Hostage Held by Hamas Appeals for Support on 100th Day of Captivity

January 14th will mark a significant milestone for the families of approximately 240 hostages who were abducted by Hamas from the Nova music festival.

She urges everyone to write the number “100” on a piece of tape and stick it to their shirts, close to their hearts. This simple act serves as a reminder of the 100 agonizing days that have passed since her son’s abduction, and the unwavering hope for his safe return.
