Michael Paul, In 1966 I served in the Army. I did my basic training and OJT at Fort Sill in Lawton, Oklahoma. I eventually went to Viet Nam. I was stationed in Lawton for about 8 months. Lawton was the 3rd largest city in Oklahoma at that time, I don't know about today. There were about 50 Jews in the whole town as I remember it. On Jewish holidays, the army would send a Jewish chaplain to run services for soldiers and local civilians. As far as I know there was no Chabad at that time. Now it is 2 generations later and I wonder what happened to those Jews living in a very overwhelmingly non-Jewish community. I am curious if the Rabbi that did his outreach in Oklahoma would know the answer to that question. I was from Brooklyn and the thought of being raised in a community of so few Jews was so very strange. to me. I would like to know if that community survived and even thrived. Reply
