Just in time for the first light of Hanukkah, three-year-old twins Emma and Yuli Cunio and their mother Sharon Aloni Cunio, 34, were discharged from Schneider Children’s Medical Center

Seized from their home in Kibbutz Nir Oz by terrorists on October 7, the three were held hostage in Gaza by Hamas until they were released on November 27 as part of a temporary ceasefire deal brokered by Qatar and the United States between Hamas and Israel. The twins’ father David, 34, is still held in Gaza.

Sharon’s sister Danielle Aloni, 44, and her daughter Emilia, 5, were also held hostage and were released on November 24.
