Austin’s Jewish War Veterans of the United States of the United States of America Post 757 has redesigned its historical display case at the entrance of the Jewish Community Center of Austin. The new exhibit highlights the contributions of Jewish men and women who have served the nation throughout history.
The artifacts are on loan from the Gregg and Michelle Philipson Collection and Archive. Local JWV post member Gregg Philipson designed the exhibit “to insure that our local community can learn about the sacrifices Jews have made and the heroism American Jews have displayed throughout our history as a nation.”
JWV was established in 1896. JWV holds a congressional charter under Title 36 of the United States Code. The oldest continuously active veterans’ organization in the United States, JWV serves veterans throughout the country by advocating for their rights and benefits at the national, state and local levels. JWV is dedicated to upholding America’s democratic traditions and fighting bigotry, prejudice, injustice and discrimination of all kinds. ■
