Members of Connecticut’s Jewish War Veterans Major General Maurice Rose Post 51 found a thoughtful way to combine the celebration of the holiday Shavuot, which fell on Memorial Day weekend with a remembrance of the soldiers who gave their lives fighting for America. Past Post Commander Norman Hanenbaum prepared readings for a special Shabbat service held at Congregation Beth Shalom Rodfe Zedek in Chester, and veteran Harvey Redak played Taps. The service concluded with the singing of “God Bless America.” In addition, the veterans placed flags at the Veterans Cemetery in Middletown.
