Activists have spread out a massive blanket, dubbed the “Blanket of Hope,” at Hostages Square in Tel Aviv.
Its makers were asked to create patches in a method of their choice that were sewn together into one huge blanket displayed, which will later be displaced at UN Headquarters in New York.
Alongside the blanket, a mass yoga class is taking place in honor of Carmel Gat, one of the hostages who freed captives say did yoga once a day with the children who were held with her in order to keep them busy.
With the release of dozens of hostages, the family received word that Carmel was seen by other hostages. They reported she had been kept captive with some children and did yoga once a day with them.
A Shabbat dinner table has also been set up once again at Hostage Square with empty chairs for the 136 remaining hostages.
