Placing Jewish Ritual Stones at Veterans’ Graves

Monday, December 13, 2021 @ 10:00 am

Each year, thousands of volunteers across the country participate in the Wreaths Across America remembrance program to visit over two-thousand veteran and private cemeteries to place millions of remembrance wreaths atop the graves of our veterans.  Here in San Diego, our WWA committee has initiated a practice to honor and remember veterans of the Jewish faith with the custom of placing Jewish Ritual Stones atop the veterans’ gravesites.

WWA is looking for volunteers to help place ritual stones on Monday, December 13, 2021 beginning at 10:00 am.

Jewish War Veterans Harry Apelman – Arthur Towne Post 185  (Commander: Allen Miliefsky) shall “lead/coordinate” this ritual remembrance activity.

Participants shall assemble within the Memorial Walk adjacent to the Jewish Veterans Memorial.  [It is in the forefront.]
