When the nation celebrates Veterans Day, a solemn ceremony will also take place at the Jewish Veterans Memorial on the Sandler Family Campus of the Tidewater Jewish community.
Now three years old, the memorial was created through significant donations, as well as by the purchase of pavers inscribed with the names of Jewish veterans who served in the past as well as those currently serving in the Armed Forces. Veterans from Russia, Canada and Israel are also honored.
The Memorial site has spaces for more pavers. A $100 paver is a marvelous way to remember a loved one in perpetuity. Such a remembrance, whether the honoree served in a time of conflict or in a time of peace, is a dignified tribute. It acknowledges that the individual gave a significant amount of time entirely to the defense of their country. Such commitments merit lasting recognition.
Applications for pavers are available in the JCC lobby or from Shelby Tudor with the Tidewater Jewish Foundation, 757‑965-6105 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
