Excitement as Montrealer is Freed
Saul Itzhayek the Montreal business man who has been sitting in an Indian jail for over ten months will be freed tomorrow, according to Indian authorities. Mr. Itzhayek found himself in jail due to claims made by the Indian authorities of visa irregularities, which were unfounded. The Montreal community has greeted this news with great excitement. The Itzhayek family will surely be in a state of great Simcha as Saul arrives in Montreal. Much effort was made to have Saul Itzhayek freed by Mr. Irwin Cotler, as well as Rabbi Whitman in conjunction with other members of the Rabbinical council of Montreal. All of their efforts are truly appreciated, and everyone is rejoicing today at this great news.
