Honoring Jewish war veterans


The annual ceremony to honor Jewish war veterans took place on Nov. 11 at Garrison Forest Veterans Cemetery in Owings Mills. Those who have served in the U.S. military gathered to recall the fallen and honor the living. Due to heavy rain, the event this year was held indoors. Along with family and friends, attending the service were: Col. (ret.) Erwin Burtnick; U.S. military chaplain Rabbi Chesky Tenenbaum of the Jewish Uniformed Service Association (JUDA) of Maryland; Vietnam War veteran Mike Zippert; and Mark Simon, who wrapped tefillin with Tenenbaum.
