This Friday, August 24, 2019, corresponding to the Hebrew Date, 23 Av 5779
We remember Pvt. Louis Deitchman, United States Army. He entered the Service from Passaic, NJ. He was Killed-in-Action, 23 AV 5704, which corresponds to August 12, 1944. He was awarded the Purple Heart. His name is memorialized at the Brittany American Military Cemetery, France. When we say Kaddish for Pvt. Deitchman, 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.
