Download PDF for this date

The Tri-Town Section of the National Council of Jewish Woman has donated a Sefer Torah to the chapel at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, to provide for the religious needs of Jewish servicemen and their families at that military post. The donation was made in response to a request for religious items by Lt. Seymour Moskowitz, the Jewish Chaplain at Fort Sam Houston. A spokesman for the Tri-Town Section said, “The members felt that our boys in the Armed Forces deserve the privilege of being able to pray and conduct services, no matter in which lonely outpost or military installation they should happen to be stationed.”
