Congresswoman Elaine Luria was Ohef Sholom Temple’s guest speaker for Armed Forces Shabbat on Friday, May 17. She spoke of her experience commanding combatant ships in the Navy, and how this, along with her strong Jewish upbringing, led her to her current position representing Virginia’s Second District in the United States House of Representatives.

Following the service, OST’s congregants who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces who were in attendance, along with Rabbi Rosalin Mandelberg and Cantor Jen Reuben, gathered for this photograph.
