Jewish military chaplains have at their disposal a wide array of
Jewish cultural resources provided by JWB.
On the tenth anniversary of JWB’s assumption of sponsorship
of the Jewish Book Council, which coincided with the centennial
of the Jewish Community Center movement in 1954, the Book
Council adopted a resolution declaring that JWB has provided
“the means for the enhancement of the cultural resources of the
American Jewish community.”
More than ten years later it can be affirmed that JWB and its
affiliated Jewish Community Centers have become a solid link
between the rich Jewish cultural past and the changing Jewish
cultural needs of the present, as well as an important channel
and platform for Jewish cultural experimentation, development
and enhancement.
