Join & Support: Arlington National Cemetery Brochure

Chaplain Alexander GoodeJoin the Campaign to Commemorate Jewish Sites at Arlington National Cemetery

JHSGW is raising funds to design, print, and distribute a new brochure about Jewish history in Arlington National Cemetery. It includes information about prominent Jews, such as Admiral Hyman Rickover, Gladys Noon Spellman, and sculptor Sir Moses Ezekiel, buried in the Cemetery. It also discusses Jewish burial rites in relation to the Cemetery and touches on the history of Jews in the military. Special monuments like those for the Space Shuttle astronauts, Confederate soldiers, and the new Jewish Chaplains Memorial will be included.

To honor the Jews interred in the cemetery, we are seeking donations of $50, $100, $250, or $500.

To date, we have raised $4,100 toward our goal of $10,000.

Let’s make this a true community effort!
