Korean Chanuka Back in 1968-1969, I celebrated the holidays in Seoul, Korea with Jews from all over Korea, including civilians. It was one of the highlights of my time in service and Ive never forgotten it. The fellowship and the food were wonderful! Many thanks. Reply

thank you for sharing this Our community has been very active due to the hard work of one wonderful woman, in sending packages to our soldiers throughout the world. If the anonymous poster who asked about the MSA would email me i can suggest how she can do the same for those students. Reply

Packages to our Military Cadets & Midshipman I am somewhat curious, were Chanukah packages also sent to our young Men & Woman that are at our Military Service Academies? Those would be: USMA, (United States Military Academy). USAFA, (The United States Air Force Acadeny). USNA, (United States Naval Academy). USGCA, (United States Coast Guard Academy) Reply
