Insiders SDJW/ Staffbox

If you enjoy history, the column that Gail Umeham assembled from the September 4, 1953 edition of Southwestern Jewish Press is bound to stimulate your interest. There's a High Holiday greeting from the nation's new vice president, a fellow named Richard Nixon; an emotional letter from the Jewish chaplains in Korea urging continued support for Armed Forces personnel even after the approaching Armistice; a column by Albert Hutler, UJF executive director, anticipating the impact tha having a JCC, Hebrew Home for the Aged and other Jewish agencies all together on 54th Street would have on the community, and an advertisement for the Sholom Mausoleum then being completed at Greenwood Cemetery.


Today's issue is dedicated with happy birthday wishes to Yoni Peres in Kfar Hayarok, Israel (Aug. 16) and Edward Zeiden in Irvine, California (Aug. 17), along with happy anniuversary wishes to David and Hui-Wen Harrison of Carlsbad, California
