This link contains information with links to special programming for each of the 8 nights of Hanukkah (beginning tonight)
Clicking on the grey circle for each day in the attached PDF will take you to video programming created by our chaplains.
Every denomination within Judaism, from Orthodox to Reform, has come together within JWB to create this content for all Jews in uniform and their families.
There is also a link on the flyer to live Menorah lightings around our military.
Please share this with all of your Jewish Sailors, Marines, and Coastsguardsmen in time for the lighting of the first candle this evening. This is an excellent resource and will be particularly helpful for deployed personnel.
This evening we wish our Jewish sisters and brothers a !חֲנוּכָּה שַׂמֵחַ (Happy Hanukkah!) Wherever you are, at sea or ashore, may the next eight nights be filled with joy and some good gelt! #NavyChaplains #ReligiousLiberty
For 245 years the Chaplains of the U.S. Navy have served our nation’s warriors in every clime and place. From the Barbary Coast to Belleau Wood; from the Coral Sea to the Chosin Resevoir; from Yankee Station to Fallujah. We’ve always been with our Sailors, Marines, and Coastguardsmen in the fight...and we always will. Happy Birthday, Chaplains! #NavyChaplains #calledtoserve
When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living, If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself. -Tecumseh #NavyChaplains #Thanksgiving2020
A just society must keep faith with those who have borne the burden of service. Today we remember their sacrifices and honor their lives. #VeteransDay #NavyChaplains
Never forget #USMC #NavyChaplains
On this day in 1983: The Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon is attacked by a suicide bomber, killing 220 Marines, 18 Sailors, 3 Soldiers and 58 French troops. It was the largest single-day loss of life of Marines since Iwo Jima. Three Navy Chaplains: George Pucciarelli, Danny Wheeler, and Arnie Resnicoff, exemplified the true spirit of of Naval Chaplaincy as they ministered to the Marines and Sailors in the aftermath of the attack
In these photos Navy chaplain Rabbi Arnold Resnicoff wears the yarmulke made for him by Roman Catholic Navy chaplain, Father George Pucciarelli (from a piece of Pucciarelli's uniform) after Resnicoff's yarmulke was bloodied when it was used to wipe the face of a wounded Marine after the bombing. #NavyChaplains #USMC #BeirutBarracks
Today we celebrate the 245th birthday of our Navy. From Rev. Benjamin Balch in the Revolutionary War to today's women and men ministering to Sailors around the world, Navy Chaplains are proud to be part of the Navy family. Happy Birthday, Shipmates! #245NavyBirthday #VictoryAtSea
Today marks 20 years since the USS COLE (DDG 67) was attacked in Aden harbor, Yemen. Seventeen of our comrades lost their lives at 11:18 (local) that morning. Let us remember the brave who gave their lives for their country, their ship, and one another. Let us offer prayers for those families who laid such a costly sacrifice upon the altar of freedom, and let us pray that we conduct our lives in such a way as to honor their sacrifice. #HonorTheFallen #Remember67
At this time, when the pandemic is directly affecting senior leaders within the Navy and our fellow services, please join me in prayer, according to your own faith, that these women and men might be protected from serious illness, that they might be returned to health, and that they be granted the wisdom and courage to make the best decisions for our Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard families. #NavyChaplains #USN
Starting this evening, Jewish Sailors, Marines, and Coastguardsmen the world over will celebrate and observe Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year. Over the next ten days and culminating in Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, our Jewish servicemembers will engage in a period of repentance, as they ask for forgiveness from both humans and God. But this repentance comes as well with an obligation to reflect and grow, and a commitment to change in the year to come. So to all of our Jewish colleagues, may this period of growth and reflection be filled with meaning and intention. May the new year be a good one, and may you all be inscribed in the book of life.
Colleagues in PNC, this year's PDTW and PDTC will be different than anything we've done before. The content is critical in growing our competency in advising commanders.
In order for each of us to to get the maximum benefit, we must be ready to train before Day One. Please take a few minutes to watch this video from Chaplain Cash, it answers critical questions and will help ensure we're ready to focus on the content NCSC has worked so hard to produce.

A message from the Chief of Navy Chaplains regarding current events.
People are the heart and soul of the Sea Services. As the nation is plummeted into unrest on the streets, @NavyChaplains and RPs value life and those graced with life. We proudly serve alongside Sailors, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen of every kindred and tribe. #usnavy #usmc #usgc

We've heard it countless times over the past few months. We have to "flatten the curve" of COVID-19! But there is a different kind of "flattening" that needs attention during these times of catastrophe and difficulty....
As many of you know, a couple weeks ago we learned of the tragic and unexpected death of one of our own, CAPT Bruce Boyle. At the time of his death, Bruce was on terminal leave, finishing 34 years of uniformed service, 30 of that as a chaplain. He finished his tour as the Chaplain for Coast Guard Atlantic Area.
At the time of my first posting announcing Bruce’s death, I failed to recognize the many blessings that your comments and condolences would bring to Bruce’s wife, Jane. Unfortunately, we did not preserve all of those comments.
As our community honors and remembers Bruce, Jane continues to receive loving and faithful support from her local church family, chaplains, and friends. If you would like to express your sympathy or words of comfort to Jane once again, I invite you to comment below. If you would like your comments to remain private, you can email them to [email protected]. My staff will ensure they are forwarded to her.
May God bless you all, and may His grace and mercy abound in the life of Jane and her family.
(At the time of this posting, we received permission from Jane Boyle to post her name on Facebook)

Thank you Chaplain Madison Carter
Fantastic Article, Thank you CDR. Bryan Crittendo stationed onboard NAS Pensacola.
This is what right looks like! Check out this Marine Corps Gazette article written by Naval Surface Forces Atlantic Command Chaplain, CAPT Brian Waite. As the subtitle suggests, CAPT Waite explores how Navy chaplains are developing toughness in the 21st century warrior.

We so often resist the guardrails of life! But many of them are for our benefit, keeping us from danger and benefiting not only our physical and emotional well-being, but our spiritual as well.
Shout out to the Religious Ministry Team onboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN-69) and all the RMTs attached to Carrier Strike Group TEN! Check out the amazing work these chaplains and RPs are doing!

Please take some time to listen to Admiral Lee's instructional video "Eight Minutes of Soul Care During COVID-19." Great insight from a world-class leader and chaplain!
Many of us are going stir-crazy! So what are we to do when we find oursleves being held hostage by the restrains and constraints of COVID-19? Watch, listen, and then share your thoughts!
Thank you Chaplain Joe Robbins for your fantastic video, "Overcoming Obstacles."
Don't forget to join the Chief of Chaplains, Deputy Chief of Chaplains, and the Senior Enlisted Leader of the RP rating tomorrow on April 28th at 1400 EST, for a Virtual Town Hall meeting on the Navy Chaplain Corps Page.
