Ronen and Orna Neutra—the parents of American-Israeli hostage Omer, who has been held by Hamas terrorists since October 7—have endured unspeakable agony while tirelessly advocating for the safe return of their son. 

Since October 7, American Jewish Committee (AJC) has brought hostage family delegations to Washington, D.C., Houston, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Dallas, Boston, Paris, Brussels, and more cities around the world. AJC professionals and leaders have tried to put themselves in the shoes of family members experiencing unbearable pain to tell their stories and spur action in the hopes of helping to bring their loved ones home.

Take Action for the Hostages: AJC will not rest until the remaining 120 hostages are brought home. Join us as we call on Congress to secure the immediate and unconditional release of all the hostages.
