This Shabbat, November 28, 2020, corresponding to the Hebrew Date, 12 Kislev 5781
We remember R.M. 1C/S Melvin H. Bloomberg, United States Merchant Marines. He entered the Service from Miami, FL. He was Killed-in-Action, 12 Kislev 5704, which corresponds to December 9, 1943. He was awarded the Mariners Medal. His name is memorialized at the Sicily - Rome American Military Cemetery, Italy. When we say Kaddish for R.M. 1C/S Bloomberg, 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.
