We are happy to learn that former hostage Shlomi Ziv has finally returned to his northern border community in Israel weeks after being rescued, reports JNS:

Shlomi Ziv returned to his home in the northern border community of Moshav Elkosh on Tuesday, some three weeks after being rescued from Hamas captivity in the Gaza Strip.

The former captive was welcomed by Shimon Guetta, the head of the Ma’ale Yosef Regional Council, which administers the Western Galilee village.

“This is a very exciting day for all of us—to see Shlomi return to his home, and our home, in Ma’ale Yosef. God willing, we will soon be able to celebrate the return of the other 120 hostages,” Guetta told attendees at the welcome event.
