Jewish Volunteers Fired at Fort Campbell
Weekly Shabbat observances have been discontinued at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, following the dismissal of its volunteer Jewish lay leaders who led the services for close to two decades. Mikey Weinstein, the head of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, wants to know why. So do we! The Foundation sent a letter to the 101st Airborne Division Chiefs of Staff, Cols. Brett Sylvia and Mark Faria, urging “a fair and just investigation.” The Jewish Telegraphic Agency linked the letter to its coverage of the story. Now it’s making the rounds in other papers as well.
