Download PDF for this date

Four Jewish chaplains with the American armed forces in Korea are keeping in constant touch with the troops and are continuing religious and cultural programs for Jewish personnel, it was reported here today by the National Jewish Welfare Board.

The United Service Organization of World War II, in which the National Jewish Welfare Board represented the Jewish community in the work of providing religious, welfare and recreational services to the armed forces, was revived this week. The J.W.B. is once again a member.
