At the end of March, a census taken by Israel's Interior Ministry reported that the Jewish population in the nation stood at 6 million, out of a total population of 8 million. The vast majority of the remainder are Arabs, with another 350,000 non-Arab Christians, press reports indicated.
Mr. Pressman added, "If there ever was somebody who embodied the notion of tikkun olam ["repairing the world"], it was Gilbert Kraus. It certainly was embodied in how he lived his life, and in this rescue mission."
"Let me describe the Krauses this way," Mr. Pressman told The Washington Times in a telephone interview. "Gilbert, in particular, came from a long-standing German-Jewish family, professional class, upper middle income, not wealthy, but comfortable. Almost all of them were very secular Jews, they were not religious Jews, [but] they were part of that crowd and community. They were not religious, but [they were] very social-minded."
