Support Our Soldiers

Passover Gift Cartons

This year, as in years past, the Jewish War Veterans is collecting donations for Operation Matzo Meals.

Your gift to Operation Matzo Meals goes directly to the Jewish War Veterans to assist in their purchasing and shipping Kosher Passover foods and other items for soldiers overseas, who are unable to be home for the holiday with their families.

Koshertroops and Mr. Farber of the JWV:  many thanks again for the wonderful support of Passover items 
you had so graciously and generously sent to Fort Jackson for use at our Seder for both Basic Trainees 
and AIT Soldiers.  The feedback from them was terrific, and the installation considered the event a 
resounding success.  Your support of Chaplain ministry in the Army and across the Armed Forces is noted 
and longstanding.  We look forward to doing more "business" together in the future in support of Soldiers, 
Sailors, Airmen, and Marines... Thank you again.
