About the Committee:

This committee was started because the membership in JWV is aging, which is why JWV is ready to hand over the reins to the next generation.  We have a really exciting opportunity that the organization has given us by allowing us to take leadership roles and shape the organization into something meaningful for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.  We want to be the place for any Jewish person that has put on a uniform.


  • Create and support programs for Jewish service members on active duty.
  • Create and support programs for Jewish spouses of service members.
  • Create programs to mentor young Jewish soldiers and veterans in need of guidance.
  • Revamp Post meetings to fun and engaging events that Iraq and Afghanistan veterans want to participate in.
