What is National Convention?

Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A.’s (JWV) Annual Convention is the biggest gathering of Jewish American Military personnel and veterans in this nation.  Hundreds gather from around the country to learn from fellow veterans, to network within the Jewish American military and veteran community and to put their mark on the 2019 Legislative Agenda.
