Jewish Servicemen Abroad
During these difficult times, we should not forget that many men and women are serving our country abroad, and regardless of our political opinions, they deserve our support. Many servicemen are Jewish and face obstacles in maintaining their connection with the Jewish communithy. We can help by writing and remembering them in our thoughts and prayers.
