    We hope that you and your family had a wonderful holiday.

    Although we’ve just celebrated Rosh Hashanah, we are already looking ahead to Hanukkah which begins December 16. 

    This year we would like to acknowledge the spouses at home by sending them a Hanukkah package as well. 

    If you know of a Jewish service member from your unit/base that will be deployed for Hanukkah, or if they have a spouse that would like to recieve a package, please provide a name, shipping address and email. 

    Please let us know as soon as possible.  As always feel free to contact Mr. Gary Rudman at 803-895-3179/2868 with any questions regarding the Sumter/Columbia Jewish Community.

    Warm wishes for a joyous Hanukkah...

    There are more than 10,000 Jewish men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces aboard ships and stationed on bases around the world in Afghanistan, Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, Korea, Japan, Guam, Germany, England, and Italy. This Hanukkah, as you light your menorah, safe at home with your family and friends, these troops, far from their homes and family, will be lighting theirs as well.

    The heroes of the Hanukkah story, the Maccabees, fought for religious freedom-freedom of worship and freedom of religious expression. The men and women serving in the U.S. Armed Forces work every day to ensure the freedoms of the American people as well, including religious freedom. It is critical that members of the Jewish community who are serving our country experience these same freedoms. This starts with the work of chaplains.

    For nearly 100 years in times of peace and in times of war, JWB Jewish Chaplains Council has been proudly fulfilling its mission to provide for the needs of Jewish military personnel and their families and patients in VA hospitals, to relieve a sense of religious isolation and of being alone.

    This Hanukkah, when you prepare to celebrate with your loved ones, we ask that you also consider supporting the Jewish men and women serving our country.

    Warm wishes for a joyous Hanukkah,

    Rabbi Harold L. Robinson, RA CHC USN Ret

    Director, JWB Jewish Chaplains Council
