the United States destroyer Jacob
Jones. Originally reported miss
ing when the Jacob Jones was
sunk by an enemy submarine off

PASSOVER IN AN ARMY
CAMP: This is how Passover was
handled in one army camp, ac
cording to a report by Paul Gold
man, one of the Jewish Welfare
Board’s field workers:
“During the morning we got
awfully busy. That night was to
be the first Seder night. I tele-

phoned to Colonel Fields, the Di- |
vision Quartermaster. He in- i
formed me that the Matzoth had |
finally arrived. I ordered the *
dishes, knives, forks, spoons, etc.
The mess sergeant went after the
Matzoth and the regular rations
for the men.
“The fires were started in the
Mess Halls and by two in the
afternoon the tables were set for
300 and the food was kept hot on
the stoves in the rear of the Sal
vation Army hut until 6 P. M.
You should have seen the Salva
tion Army people. All morning
they scrubbed the tables until
they almost shone like mirrors.
You would imagine it was their
holiday.
“Sergeant Major Schapiro just
landed in the Hut before I went
out to lunch. I gave him the job
of taking the men’s names and
assigning them to their billets.
They came in covered army trucks
over the muddy roads in the ter
rific downpour. They were stay
ing for several days to spend their
Passover furlough with us. Scha
piro was very capable and did this
very well. Major General Weigel
told me he wanted to attend but
found it was impossible. There
were almost forty thousand other
men in the division who needed
his attention.
“Lieutenant Bienstock prepared
a little speech to the audience,
telling them of the significance of
Passover.
“Bienstock is a funny fellow.
He comes from the East Side of
New York City, speaks with a
heavy accent but has,been in the
army twelve years, thinks himself
important, and the best part of it,
he is important. He has every
officer bull-dozed. He is a real
soldier.
“After Lieutenant Bienstock
had his say, Block and I went
through the Haggadah like ma
jors.
“The attention of the crowd was
held throughout. The meal was

in the Haggadah ‘The serving of
the meal’ and got a big laugh
when I said ‘I don’t have to read
the next line!’ The food was very
good and the orchestra played
Very well. I concluded the Seder
by saying that next year’s Seder
will be at home —with the help of
God.”
That’s about all, except that
this particular Seder was held in
France—during 1918. The above
report was contained in a letter
written by Paul Goldman to his
mother 24 years ago. Mr. Gordon,
who now resides in Manhattan
Beach, N. Y., was an overseas
worker for the JWB during World
War I.
