What’s Happening

Monday, Nov. 12, 11 am

The Tidewater Jewish Foundation will hold a Veterans Day memorial event honoring Jewish War Veterans who have served the United States of America.

Cultural myths about Jews and a perceived avoidance of military service persist. This Tidewater monument proves the myth to be pure fabrication. Whenever this nation has called its young men and women to battle, American Jews have stepped up and have served the nation with true dedication and bravery.

The service will take place on the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus of the Tidewater Jewish Community at the Jewish War Veterans monument, which was completed and unveiled in 2010.

Following the ceremony, a light lunch will be served. To attend the event, RSVP to Shelby Tudor at 757-965-6105 or studor@ujft.org by Tuesday, Nov. 6. To purchase a memorial paver to honor a veteran, contact Benita Watts at 757-965-6123 or ops@ujft.org.
