Honoring Temple Shalom Veterans of the Uniformed Services of the United States
Lt. Colonel Sheldon Goldberg, Ph.D.
“100 Years Later: The Remarkable Story of American Jews
Who Served in World War One.”
Temple Member Earl Simons
reflecting on his service in the early 1950s.
As Veterans Day approaches, I wanted to bring to your attention the very special Veterans Day Shabbat Service that Alan Lewis and I have planned with the encouragement of Rabbi Franken and the cooperation of Cantor Levine.
I hope Temple members who are veterans of the uniformed services will gather to be honored during the service on the 10th. Even if you cannot be there please call the Temple and let the clergy assistant add your name to the Shabbat bulletin list of those who served.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the entry of the United States into World War I. Alan Lewis has arranged for Lt. Col Sheldon Goldberg of the Jewish War Veterans to address us that evening about the heroic story of Jewish participation in the “war to end all wars.”
Earl Simons will also share with us comments on his military service during the Korean War.
Hope to see you on the 10th!
