The day was perfect for the Greater Chicago Jewish Festival, held in Morton Grove, on Sunday, June 12.  After a hiatus of three years due to Covid-19, members of Chicago area Jewish War Veterans posts and departments were present to educate attendees to the presence of Jews in the military and to attract potential members.

Out-of-towners Kim Queen, Department of Wisconsin commander, and from Florida, Alan Paley, JWV National Commander, helped our local posts man the JWV booth.

And to our local members, thank you for helping with the set up, talking to attendees, and tearing down the booth.  We look forward to seeing you all in two years at the next Jewish Festival.
