OVER 30,000 JEWISH TROOPS WORLDWIDE DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO BASIC NECESSITIES TO LIVE A JEWISH LIFE!
Jewish Friends of the American Military is committed to our U.S Jewish Servicemen and Women like no other organization. In addition to providing much needed Kosher food, ritual items and Jewish services, JFAM runs integral Jewish programming that is at the heart of what Judaism is all about. What would Judaism be without Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur? Chanukah and Purim? Passover and Succot? Oftentimes, the military can be a very isolating experience to a serviceman who is struggling to keep their Jewish connection while simultaneously fighting for all of our freedoms. JFAM steps in and facilitates that Jewish connection, and does it worldwide.
WHO WE ARE
JFAM provides full support to all Jewish servicemen and women throughout the U.S. Armed Forces and their dependents. There are over 30,000 Jewish troops throughout the military and their Jewish experiences are not funded by their service branches. Unfortunately, there are tremendous gaps when it comes to providing Jewish servicemen with the basic necessities needed to live a Jewish life. Kosher food is lacking, prayer books are nearly nonexistent and desperately needed holiday services are few and far between. Imagine trying to celebrate a holiday or Sabbath, either at a synagogue or at home without these basic essentials of Judaism. JFAM goes worldwide and works tirelessly in support Jewish troops.
THE HARD TRUTH
US MILITARY BASES HAVE NO AVAILABLE JEWISH SERVICES
US MILITARY BASES HAVE JEWISH PERSONNEL
JEWISH MEDAL OF HONOR WINNERS
Jewish Servicemen and women put their lives on the line for us and our freedoms on a daily basis. We all owe the United States of America a huge debt of gratitude. As citizens, we owe it to our country and our Jewish brothers and sisters to support their sacrifices worldwide.
