Chaplain David Hachen, Jewish chaplain at the Norfolk Naval Training Station, was flown by the Navy to the Bermuda “Big Three” conference of President Eisenhower, Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Laniel, to conduct a Chanukah service there for Jewish military and civilian personnel from the United States, Great Britain and France in the U.S. Naval Chapel, the National Jewish Welfare Board announced today. The “Big Three” parley opens tomorrow. Special Chanukah supplies for the service–menorahs, candles and dreidels–furnished by the JWB, are being flown to Bermuda.
