Welcome to the JWVA


Dear JWVA Sisters,

I am humbled by your confidence and support, and I want to thank you for electing me as your National President. This is not a job I take lightly. I am so looking forward to traveling and meeting you, the members in the local Auxiliaries, Counties, and Departments. I want to understand from you what works, what doesn’t work, and how National can help you! We need to all work together for our Veterans, their families, and the community at large.

My theme this year is L’dor V’dor, From Generation to Generation. I chose this theme to encompass the past and promote the future. What do I mean?… We must never forget our past and present Jewish Military members, which is where “Our Museum” the National Museum of American Jewish Military History (NMAJMH) comes into play. In my own personal life, my father’s & husband’s service to our country looms big in my world, so should all the Jews that served loom big in the memory of our great country… which is why it is so important to continue the legacy and become a member of the Museum! As far as the future? It is imperative to increase our membership. Please ask your friends and acquaintances if they have a family member that is a Jewish Veteran or on Active Duty now. We need all mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives to join us.

I am looking forward to partnering with National Commander Harvey Weiner because the Auxiliary and JWV should work together for the benefit of both organizations, Veterans, and their families.

Sisters, again I am honored and privileged to represent you.
Loyally Yours,

Sandra Cantor
