On Thursday morning February 19, the Australian Friends of The Hebrew University (Vic Div) together with Hagshama, JNF, WIZO and the ZCV hosted a special screening of the 50 minute documentary “Gilad Shalit – 2 years in captivity”.

This extremely poignant film featured Gilad’s mother, Aviva Shalit in a rare public appearance since her son’s kidnapping on June 25, 2006. Beginning on the day of the kidnapping it followed a sequence of events ensuing from the kidnapping and the Shalit family’s efforts to help free Gilad, all the while showing a window into Gilad and his family; a regular Israeli family who have known more than their share of grief as a result of war.

As viewers we were drawn into the complex maze of moral and political issues that make up a possible negotiation with Hamas terrorists for Gilad’s freedom.

Panelists Jennifer Huppert MLC; AUJS Shaliach Tal Dror; Clinical psychologist Dr Hadas Sella and Habonim Shlicha Shibolet Shofet-Edelman presented fascinating insights according to their various perspectives.

Panelists (l-r): Jennifer Huppert,

Tal Dror, Hadas Sella and

Shibolet Shofet-Edelman
