Veterans Day holds special significance for Student Rabbi and U.S. Army Capt. Aaron Rozovsky, who served United Hebrew Congregation Terre Haute during the 2016-17 academic year.
Aaron, who has completed deployments in Cuba and Afghanistan, filled the Westminster Village community room last year for a special Veterans Day Shabbat service.
The event’s success invited a repeat performance, and Aaron returned this Veterans Day, in fatigues and camouflage yarmulke, to celebrate Shabbat with the retirement community and guests.
Aaron also took the opportunity to re-connect with his former congregation and conduct evening Shabbat services at Temple Israel. He recently completed two weeks’ active duty in South Carolina and is in his final year at Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in Cincinnati.
