Download PDF for this date

Jewish chaplains at all overseas military posts have been provided with cassettes of taped material devoted to Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, intended for use at overseas installations through the American Forces Radio Network, the National Jewish Welfare Board announced today. The messages and musical themes were recorded by Rabbi Ronald B. Sobel, Rev. Dr. Nathan A. Perilman, Cantor Arthur Wolfson and the choir of Temple Emanuel in New York.

The tapes were produced by the JWB’s Chaplaincy Commission. Rabbi Edward T. Sandrow, Commission chairman, said that in addition, the JWB has arranged High Holiday services for Jewish personnel at all U.S. military posts at home and abroad. High Holiday supplies for Jewish servicemen in Vietnam and 700 other posts all over the world were sent out months ago, Rabbi Sandrow said. The shipments to Jewish chaplains included prayer books, skull caps, prayer shawls, rams’ horns, kosher foods and inspirational literature.
