Memorial Day: May Their Memories Be a Blessing

On this Memorial Day, we recall all those who have given their lives defending our freedom.

Throughout American history, Jews have served alongside their fellow American citizens, in every war, and in many countries. We mourn the loss and salute the sacrifice of all soldiers – Jewish and non-Jewish, from the South and throughout the nation.

Today, consider supporting an organization like Jews in Green, or the non-partisan USO, in honor of those who served and in gratitude to soldiers’ families.

Shalom, y’all.
