Honor Our Nation’s Fallen Jewish Chaplains at 92Y

imageIn 1926, the chaplains who served in World War I erected the first chaplains’ monument at Arlington National Cemetery, dedicated to the memory of their 23 colleagues who gave their lives in that conflict.

In 1981, a separate monument was erected to memorialize 134 Protestant chaplains who died in World War I and II. Eight years later, a similar memorial to 83 Catholic chaplains who died in World War II, Korea and Vietnam was consecrated on Chaplains Hill.

Now, through the efforts of many individuals and organizations of all faiths, a memorial to the 14 Jewish chaplains who died while on active duty in WWII, The Cold War and Vietnam will stand alongside those of their Protestant and Catholic brethren.

Before its formal dedication on October 24, 2011 the new monument will be displayed at different venues across the East Coast, including 92nd Street Y on October 6 from 8 am to 3 pm.

Please join 92Y, our Jewish War Veteran Community, Rear Admiral Harold L. Robinson and Rabbi David Kalb to honor our nation’s fallen Jewish Chaplains on Thursday, October 6, 12:45 pm to 1:45 pm.

This is an extraordinary event for the Jewish community, and for anyone who is concerned that proper respect be paid to chaplains who died while on active duty. The American military chaplains’ corps is unique in its dedication and commitment to the diversity of religious expression in our armed forces. - Rabbi Harold Robinson, director of JWB Jewish Chaplains Council.
