The National Museum of American Jewish Military History, Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A. and 6th & I Historic Synagogue will hold the Annual National Shabbat Service honoring the Jewish Fallen Heroes of Iraq and Afghanistan. On this Memorial Day weekend, and hopefully countless Memorial Day weekends thereafter, we are also asking all of the synagogues throughout our nation and all Jewish organizations to read the names of these Fallen Heroes in memorial.
The National Museum of American Jewish Military History presently lists 58 identified Jewish service people who have given their lives in defense of our country in Iraq and Afghanistan.
On this Memorial Day weekend, and hopefully countless Memorial Day weekends thereafter, we are asking all of the synagogues Jewish organizations throughout our nation to read the names of these Fallen Heroes in memorial.

In remembering the names of our fallen brothers and sisters, we succeed in honoring their memories in perpetuity.
