This Friday, December 07, 2019, corresponding to the Hebrew Date, 9 Kislev 5780
We remember Ensign Allen Brody, United States Navy. He entered the Service from Jamaica, NY. He was declared Missing-in-Action, 9 Kislev 5705, which corresponds to November 25, 1944. He was awarded the Navy Cross, Air Medal and Purple Heart. His name is memorialized at the Manila American Military Cemetery, The Philippines. When we say Kaddish for Ensign Brody, we say Kaddish for all the American-Jewish War Heroes, Killed-in-Action or Missing-in-Action, whose remains will never return home to be buried in American soil and who have yahrzeits this week.
