Beth David Hazak – Letters Home: A Jewish Chaplain’s Vietnam Memoir

March 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Rabbi Shelly Lewis was ordained at the Jewish Theological Seminary, becoming a disciple of his teacher, Abraham Joshua Heschel. Volunteering for the chaplaincy in the US Army, he was deployed to Vietnam from 1970-1971 to serve Jewish personnel in the Central Highlands. Serving men and women drafted into a morally fraught war with increasing protest back home, he tried to bring a listening ear and the comfort of Jewish tradition to lonely and conflicted people. His memoir, written fifty years later, is based on daily, heartfelt letters that he sent to his newly-wed wife, Lorri.
