Israel rejoices with the hostages released by Hamas. But fear is growing for those who are still missing.
It’s a good sign that Yocheved Lifschitz’s hands are shaking again. Because that’s what they did before the 85-year-old Israeli woman was kidnapped by Hamas on October 7th, before terrorists beat her, dragged her through tunnels and held her captive for 17 days. When Lifschitz returned home at the end of October as one of the first hostages, her hands were stiff with tension. Now they are loosening up. They are shaking. Yocheved Lifschitz is slowly becoming his old self again. Her grandson Daniel Lifschitz can hardly believe it.
