Honoring Our Heroes

  • The Jewish Center 131 West 86th Street New York, NY, 10024 United States (map)

Presented by UJA-Federation of New York's Warriors and Veterans Society in partnership with Shaare Zedek and other local Jewish communal organizations, and hosted by The Jewish Center

To mark Memorial Day and Fleet Week, join UJA and Jewish communal organizations to honor our military heroes -- those who gave the last full measure of devotion in service to our country or lived out their lives as veterans. We will hear from Major General Larry S. Taylor, USMCR (Ret.) and Hannah Deutch, registered nurse in the British Army (1941-1944). We will recognize the courage and selfless service of our brothers and sisters who have dedicated themselves to our great nation.

To register, click here or contact Cori Weiss at or 212.836.1302.

If you would like to honor the memory of a loved one who served by participating in a candle-lighting ceremony, please contact Becca Meiner at or 212.836.1267.

After the program you are invited to a volunteer project creating care packages for those serving abroad, sponsored by the Major Stuart Adam Wolfer Institute (MSAWI).
