The Bender Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington (JCC) will hold a ceremony on Sunday, November 13 at 1 p.m. to rededicate the Jewish American Veterans Memorial. The ceremony will take place in the grassy area to the Bender JCC’s left (when you are facing the Center).
Originally unveiled on the Bender JCC campus at a Veterans Day observance in 2008, a sculpture created by internationally known artist Philip Ratner and donated by Alexander and Ruth Adler (both of blessed memory) has been moved to a more accessible spot on the grounds. The area around it has been enhanced with a Wall of Honor and other features designed to honor the service of Jews in the military.
The general public, along with County and State dignitaries, Jewish military personnel and representatives of the JWV’s Department of Maryland, are invited. A small coffee reception will be held in the in lobby after the ceremony.
