Families of American hostages meet with Biden in person for the first time

WASHINGTON (JTA) - Wearing black T-shirts bearing the photos of their captive loved ones, families of American hostages held by Hamas met face-to-face with President Joe Biden for the first time, part of a high profile U.S. tour by the group to keep the hostages' plight at the front and center of public discussions about the Israel-Hamas war.

"We are grateful to President Biden for his steadfast commitment to bringing our family members home and the compassion he demonstrated today," said a statement from the families after they met Wednesday with Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
