From the Revolutionary War through today’s ongoing war against terrorism, American Jews have served nobly in all branches of our country’s military—and many are among our nation’s fallen heroes. It is incumbent upon America’s Jewish community, therefore, to mark Memorial Day for both its national and its Jewish significance.

Join us online at on Sunday, May 30, at 7 p.m. as we honor Memorial Day with JWB Jewish Chaplains Council®. Featuring greetings from Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, U.S. Senator from New York, we will hear from post–9/11 Jewish Gold Star Families. Members of these families—families who have had a close relative killed in action—will reflect and reminiscence about the lives and legacies of their loved ones. Jewish military chaplains and leaders of the American Jewish community will offer words of prayer and support, as well as a commitment to ever honor the memories of Gold Star Families’ loved ones.

Bringing To Life Back To Life

The Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater is in the process of updating To Life: Stories of Courage and Survival, a collection of 67 personal stories published in 2002.

A large number of the individuals in the book have passed away and the Commission is looking for additional information that might update and/or add to their original stories. We are also looking for updated photos, both of those profiled in the book, featured alone or with family members.

In addition to updating existing stories, the Commission will consider adding accounts unrecorded in the previous edition. Also welcome are stories of local rescuers and Righteous Gentiles not previously known to the Commission.

If you have information to share, please contact Elka Mednick at [email protected].

The painfully complex act of voting in an Israeli election

For those of us unsure of what the heck is happening in Israel today.

The electoral system is simple: Voters have one choice to make, and there are no regional constituencies or extra chambers of parliament. So why is it so complicated?

Before I put these on Market Place. Does anybody want these? $75 for a little over 200 Large Bricks $25 for 21 Smaller Brick Lengths The exact count may be off by a few but Home Depot is selling these for a lot more! You will have to come get them but I can help load them for you.

Hey all! We are looking for a professional dog trainer that is not treat motivation based. It is for our English bulldog that doesn’t like to be active or go outside, which we would like to change. He is afraid of basically everything and in general kind of a spoiled brat lol. If anyone has any recommendations that would be most appreciated. Thank you!

Hi! For all who I have not met, I am thrilled to be on this page with you for both personal and professional reasons. My husband Steve Zuckerman was YAD Chair a few years back ;) while I was CRC UJFT Chair. Now I have switched sides of the table from lay leader to staff and serve as your Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC)Director. The "your" is intentional since I feel privileged and honored to get to work for all of you as members of our unique and special Jewish community. I am thrilled YAD is partnering with JCRC for this WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30 @7:30PM event you will not want to miss: YOUR VOTE IS YOUR VOICE with Eitan Hersh. Check it out and #1 VOTE AND #2 hear how we can go from news consumer sitting on the couch to social and political action change-maker! I look fwd to ZOOMING with all of you on Sept 30.
Hello everyone 🙂 two days ago over zoom Phil showed how to grill like we do it in Israel so who ever want to try something new for 4th of July can go ahead and give it a try (or any other day!) It was fun and interesting and we all learned new things, I know not everyone could make it so here you go, here is the recording from the live Israeli grilling cooking class 🙂 Thank you for anyone who could show-up and took place in the class and we are looking foreword to the next one. Enjoy it!! and Shabat Shalom 🥰
I’ve aged out of YAD, but I really enjoyed today’s shakshuka cooking lesson. Tastes great.
Thank you so much for everyone who could join today to my baking class on zoom .🍪🍪 I had such a GREAT time and I hope you did too 😊 Thank you for coming up with this amazing idea and planing it ! I'm looking forward for more in the future!! 🤗 Enjoy your creations and share your thoughts and photos if you like👌🙏 Happy Passover everyone ❤️
