BENEFITING: Jewish Community Centers Assoc of North America
Chris Strom wrote -What connects you to Judaism? Challah on Fridays? Honey cake on Rosh Hashanah? Involvement in community? Clergy who pay attention to your spiritual growth? For Jewish troops who serve in the U.S. Armed Forces, stationed all around the world, JWB chaplains make the connection to Judaism possible. Chaplains go above and beyond to give troops authentic Jewish experiences. One way that Chaplains can make this happen is through the all-important $600 discretionary stipend JWB provides to enable them to respond to Jewish troops' needs. To ensure the availability of these vital funds, JWB Jewish Chaplains Council needs $10,000. This will guarantee that the chaplains have what they need to serve Jews who serve.
