This Shabbat, May 15, 2021, corresponding to the Hebrew Date, 4 Sivan 5781
We remember 2nd Lt. Irving P. Siegel, United States Army. He entered the Service from Philadelphia, PA. He was Killed- in- Action, 4 Sivan 5705, which corresponds to May 16, 1945. He was awarded the Bronze Star Medal, and Purple Heart with Oak Leaf Cluster. His name is memorialized at the American Military Cemetery at MANILLA, PHILLIPINES. When we say Kaddish for 2nd Lt. Siegel, 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.
