Jewish War Veterans (JWV)

Department of Minnesota





We are the American Jewish veterans' organization established in 1896 by Civil War veterans to prove that Jews have proudly served this country since the Revolutionary Era. We are the oldest congressionally chartered Veterans Organization with an estimated 15,000 members nationwide, ranging from World War II to current conflicts and active duty personnel.  JWV acts as the voice for Jewish military veterans and as a liaison with other veterans groups.
