JNS.org – Rabbi Yehudah Glick, a promoter of Jewish access to the Temple Mount who has been in the hospital since he was shot by an Arab terrorist on Oct. 29, has started to breathe on his own and is able to interact with his environment, marking a significant improvement in his condition.

Glick, who is hospitalized at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, felt well enough to speak on the telephone with Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein. The two have a close relationship, formed when Edelstein was Israel’s immigrant absorption minister and Glick was the ministry’s spokesman.

“You are the first people with which I would like to share my joy,” Edelstein told the Knesset. “A moment ago, I stepped out to speak to Yehudah Glick, who has been breathing on his own for the last two hours. … Many of those who have spoken here (in the Knesset) in recent days have wished him a complete recovery. … Your wishes helped.”
