The Hostages and Missing Families Forum has released an ad for Passover on social media, telling of all the different ways Jewish families in Israel and around the world can commemorate the hostages at the seder table.

Among the recommendations are leaving an empty chair for the hostages (much like President Herzog's recommendation), as well as saying a special blessing for the hostages' return.
