A Jewish Perspective on Memorial Day

Friday’s 10 Minutes of Torah offering looked ahead to today, Memorial Day in the United States. It provided some terrific background on the history of Jewish military service in the United States, and important information on ways to support Jewish (and non-Jewish) military personnel and their families. Please take some time today to read the post, reprinted on the RJ.org blog, and, if possible, do something to honor these heroes. (I’ll be attended a Memorial Day Ceremony at a local synagogue later today and bringing along an item for a care package bound for an active service member.)
