Louis Har’s son-in-law on meeting him: ‘There were hugs, tears. Not many words’

Louis Har’s son-in-law Edan Begerano tells Channel 12 it was a “surrealistic” feeling to see the family’s hopes and prayers fulfilled.

“Shortly after 3 a.m. I came back from the airport because my son had returned from abroad. I got home, I was about to go to sleep, and after 15 minutes there was a call… They said, ‘come he’s here.'”

“There were hugs, tears. Not many words,” he said. “It seems he was very worried about us all.”

Asked on his first impressions of the pair, Begerano said “They’re both in bed at the hospital. It’s difficult to know, but they look whole. Whether they’re healthy in spirit, in body, is still hard to know. But they look whole.”

“It seems they had strength of spirit for these 128 days, to remain strong and to come back to us.”

He notes that neither is young, with Har turning 71 in a few weeks’ time, and Marman having marked his 61st birthday in captivity.
