The JCC Movement began in 1917, the Jewish Welfare Board began to serve young men entering the military in World War I. Today, as JWB Jewish Chaplains Council, a signature program of JCC Association, that work continues: safeguarding the rights, fulfilling spiritual needs, combatting loneliness and isolation and honoring the service of Jewish men and women in the United States armed forces. JWB is a U.S. government-accredited agency for serving the religious and requirements of Jewish military personnel, their families, and patients in VA hospitals, or wherever they serve.
