Capitol rally for captives

Families of three captive Israeli soldiers will join Congress members and Jewish community leaders in a Washington rally. The rally Tuesday for the release of Gilad Shalit, taken by Palestinian gunmen in June, and Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, abducted by Hezbollah in July, will take place on the steps of the Capitol building. It will be the culmination of the three-day conferences next week of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs and Hillel.
