U.S. Jewish Chaplains Hold Four-day Parley in Goering’s Home

July 1, 1955
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Fifteen Jewish U.S. Army, Air Force and Navy chaplains from all parts of Europe today concluded a four-day retreat here conducted by Rabbi Joseph H. Lookstein, of New York, chairman of the Jewish Welfare Board’s chaplaincy commission and professor of Jewish sociology at Yeshiva University.

The retreat is a period of study and contemplation, in the course of which the chaplains also take counsel about the problems facing them. It took place in the home which Field Marshal Goering built near Berchtesgaden, a town notorious to this day for the persistence among the population of Hitler worship and Nazi ideas.
