About Jewish War Veterans of the United States, New Jersey
The Jewish War Veterans of the United States of America is the oldest active veterans organization in the United States. It was formed in 1896 by a group of Jewish Civil War veterans who organized the Hebrew Union Veterans in direct response to libels that Jews had not served in the American military.
Today, the Jewish War Veterans of the United States combats anti-Semitism in all its forms, carries on an extensive program committed to upholding America’s democratic traditions, and fights bigotry, prejudice, injustice and discrimination of all kinds.
The Department of New Jersey is in the forefront in efforts to educate and inform our governmental legislators on those issues of particular concern to all veterans including funding, services and benefits. Each Jewish War Veterans from the Department of New Jersey participate in a “March on the Hill”, down in DC. We talk to all our Federal legislators and make sure that they are aware of our organization’s position on those Veteran issues of vital concern. We support more funding for our veteran’s hospitals, better clinics, Veteran legislation that improves ALL Veterans and their family lives.
On the State Level, we interface with all our State Assembly and Senate Legislators, to improve NJ Veteran issues and the Veteran Homes.
The JWV Department of New Jersey also is involved in support of local veterans’ activities such as parades, memorial events, picnics, flag retirement services (contact our commander if you have a worn and\or tattered flag) and holiday celebrations.
