Jewish War Veterans Flagpole, Sandler Family Campus

The Board of Rabbis and Cantors of Hampton Roads and the Jewish War Veterans (Post 158) will host a community Memorial Day Weekend observance to start the weekend in appreciation of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for America’s freedom.

The weekend that will be marked by the celebration of Shavuot, and Memorial Day (for many, a secular barbecue fest), will also offer an opportunity to join together to pause and value the many brave men and women who have given their lives in support of a nation where “we can go to shul on Friday and Saturday and go to the beach on Sunday,” says Rabbi Yonatan M. Warren, BCC, Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Navy Chaplain Corps.

Hosted by the local Navy Jewish Chaplains, Rabbi Yoni Warren (Navy Medical Center Portsmouth) and Rabbi Aaron Kleinman (Marine Forces Command), this event is open to all.

Rain location will be inside the Sandler Family Campus.
