Messages of hope for the hostages being held by Hamas will be soaring sky high on Sunday, 12th November, when the Jewish community of Melbourne fly hundreds of kites in Caulfield Park as part of the Bring Them Home campaign.

The Kites for Freedom event is particularly symbolic as on 7th October, residents of Kfar Azza had been planning to hold their annual Kite Festival.

Traditionally, a day meant to send the community’s message of peace to their Palestinian neighbours. Instead, it became a day of tragedy and horror when Hamas terrorists rampaged through the kibbutz.

From 11am on Sunday, members of the community are invited to bring their own kites to Caulfield Park or to make kites there.

They will then attach messages of hope and unity dedicated to the kidnapped children to the kites before flying them.

Kites For Freedom has been organised by Zionism Victoria, Habayit and United With Israel.

Zionism Victoria Executive Director Zeddy Lawrence said, “What the residents of Kibbutz Kfar Azza were brutally prevented from doing on 7th October, we now do in their honour.

And just as our kites are free to float in the breeze against a bright blue sky, so we pray that the hostages held in Gaza will soon be free to enjoy the daylight once again.”
