(RESPONSA TO CHAPLAINS)
The present modest collection of "Responsa to Chaplains (1948-1953)" is intended to supplement the more extensive series of discussions in this field previously published by the National Jewish Welfare Board under the title "Responsa in War Time." During the past five years, the Responsa Committee of the Commission on Jewish Chaplaincy has considered numerous questions of Jewish law submitted by military or V.A. chaplains. Those replies deemed to be of general interest are here made available to Jewish chaplains, new to the service, and to others concerned with Jewish personnel in the Armed Forces and in Veterans Administration establishments.
The Commission's Responsa Committee currently includes: Rabbi Solomon B. Freehof, Chairman; Rabbi David Aronson, and Rabbi Leo Jung. To these distinguished rabbis and to those who have, in the past, contributed to this collection, their colleagues on the Commission offer renewed expression of lasting appreciation.
