The 2018 Event

The Service was again led by:

  • Moderator Harry S. Sudman

Past President of B’nai B’rith of Greater Cincinnati



As Keynote speaker, we were honored to have:


  • Judge Lisa Allen

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court

  • Honoring and Recognizing Harvey Cheyette (in absentia) and Elaine Owen for their many years of dedication to this Memorial Service



For the fifth consecutive year, our Memorial Service was honored to have the Honor Guard Unit from American Legion Post 534.



The Honor Guard Unit presented colors and flew the American Flag.  Additionally, they performed a 21-gun salute, and blew taps.

The War Memorial, established at this location and dedicated October 14, 1945, to the memory of our valiant servicemen, involved the joint efforts of various leaders in the Jewish community, including Louis Weiland. Uncle Lou Weiland, as everyone referred to him, served as the original chairman of the War Memorial Committee, and as chairman of this event, every year from its inception, until he passed away in July, 1982. The late Honorable Judge Robert S. Kraft and Jack Landman then took over as co-chairmen until 1993.

Event address: Covedale Cemetery, 5375 Sidney Rd, Cincinnati, OH 45238.
