Pacific Lehi lla Active De spite Isolation

By JOHN J. ROSENBLATT
Armed Forces Jewish
Chaplain in Mid-Pacific
Hawaii Naval Station

HAWAII — Many Jews
might have a hard time be-
lieving - that a very active
Jewish community exists on
a tiny Pacific island 6,000
miles away from California.
But on Kwajalein in the
Marshall Islands, 87 Jews —
military and civilian — un-
der the leadership of a dedi-
cated and hardworking Jew-
ish military lay leader, are
seriously involved in their
Jewish communal life.
Recently, a house trailer,
complete with air-condition-
ing, kosher kitchen,• three
classrooms and a chapel
area seating 55 people, was
formally dedicated as the
KMR Jewish Center of the
Pacific. It is the first perma-
nent home of the Jewish
community of Kwajalein.
The little atoll, buried in
the World War II history of
the Marshall Islands, where
vigorous fighting took place,
is not too distant from
where the first nuclear
bomb was tested. It is cur-
rently the site for ballistic
missle testing under the di-
rection of the U.S. Army,
which employs contractor
personnel for research and
development of new types of
rocket projectiles.
At present, the Jews of
Kwajalein take part in
Sabbath evening worship,
religious school, and adult
Jewish education.
The dedication of the
KMR Jewish Center was the
fulfillment of a dream, my
dream for a dignified place
for Jewish worship and
study. I am the supervisory
chaplain of the Jewish pro-
gram at Kwajalein in addi-
tion to my duties as Armed
Forces Jewish Chaplain for
the mid-Pacific (stationed in
Hawaii), where I serve
members of the Army,
Navy, Air Force, Coast

Guard and Marines. Melvin
Winderman, a registered X-
ray technician, is the lay
leader of the -community.
For many years Kwaja-
lein did not have a real home
for its local Jewish commu-
nity; its one existing chapel
was built as a church solely
for Protestant and Catholic
worship. Through the work
of lay leader Winderman,
who devoted many lours to
help bring about my dream,
the KMR Jewish Center was
established.
The dream was born some
three years ago when I con-
ducted my first Bar Mitzva
on the atoll. This was fol-
lowed by the traditional
wedding of an Israeli cou-
ple, who asked that the wed-
ding ceremony be done
completely in Hebrew, with
the writing of the tradi-
tional Hebrew ketuba and
with the ceremony of kin-
yan. In the absence of a
Jewish place of worship, the
ceremony was held out-
doors (with the hupa made
from home-grown palm
branches), followed by a
traditional wedding meal
held under the blue Pacific
sky.
The hupa was subse-
quently used as the basis
for a communal sukka,
which served as a focal
point in activating the
Jewish community to ex-
press their Jewish long-
ings.
Since the dedication of
the KMR Jewish Center,
many non-Jewish members
of the Kwajalein Missle
Range have attended var-
ious Jewish functions to see
for the first time in their
lives how their Jewish
neighbors celebrate their
religious traditions. Many
non-Jews have helped
decorate and fix up the Jew-
ish Center, which has
brought about much good
will and interfaith under-
standing.

'• •

The secret of the success
of the KMR Jewish program
seems to lie in the mainte-
nance of a clear channel of
communication between the
lay leader and the military
rabbi, even though we are
separated by more than
3,000 miles. The lay leader
phones me weekly to discuss
his program and writes
frequently.
On my last visit to Kwaja-
lein. at a large party for the
children of the Jewish com-
munity, I distributed many
"goodies" supplied by the
National Jewish Welfare
Board.
Much of the success of
the Jewish program and
activities on Kwajalein is
the direct result of the
work of Jewish military
lay leader Melvin Winder-
man. In this letter from
Winderman to the JWB
Commission on Jewish
Chaplaincy, he describes
the things that can be ac-
complished.
To begin with, I have or-
ganized an advisory com-
mittee. For our small popu-
lation, I have a president,
secretary and treasurer,
plus planning and education.
committees. I have desig-
nated various members of
our congregation for spe-
cific duties, such as an oneg
chairman, who will weekly
assign a family to handle
same; also a Hebrew
teacher who, with the aid of
some of the older post-Bar
Mitzva boys, will teach the
younger children. Our presi-
dent, Stan Krieger, is well
educated in Hebrew and
teaches the older children
and,adults in our Hebrew
school (beginning Hebrew).
We are now organizing a
Sunday school for the
young children, where,
under my supervision
along with other adult su-
pervision, our older girls
will teach the young about
Jewish culture.
