Happy Easter to my Christian readers, and a note about where I’ll be for the next two days:
Jewish Soldiers in US Armed Forces Who Fought in World War I
Hold Passover Seder in France
Tonight at sundown, the third part of Passover–the last couple of days–begins. So, I will be out of up-to-date blog commission until Tuesday Night. In my absence, I’ve prepared some items in advance which will be posted the next couple of days–including some updates on the Sean Hannity Freedom Concerts & Freedom Alliance scams and a frightening story of a family of Iranian aliens who are being granted citizenship despite the fact that they committed immigration fraud, passport forgery, etc. Plus, I still have a few things yet to post today. Stay tuned. And thanks for your continued patronage.
In the meantime, check out the photo above, which is a Passover Seder held by Jewish American soldiers serving in the American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) during World War I, in France, nearly a century ago. The photo was taken by Private L. Cohen of the U.S. Army. The Seder was put on by the Jewish Welfare Board, an organization that helped Jewish soldiers in the U.S. Armed Forces keep Judaism and also provided moral support, postcards home, and much other aid to all U.S. Armed Forces soldiers of all religions and faiths in several American wars (including WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam).
See ya Tuesday Night, and . . .
Y’all come back now, ya hear.
