About This Item

8vo size trade paperback with black and white photo illustrated front cover; 126 pages including a section of black and white photographs. In addition to serving as a chaplain overseas in World War II, Rabbi Seligson, served Central Synagogue in New York City as assistant rabbi, then chief rabbi for 20 years and later as rabbi emeritus. He was also the host of the Message of Israel radio program. The New York Times wrote in his obituary: "Rabbi Seligson was among the first Jewish chaplains to volunteer to serve overseas during World War II. As an Army chaplain, he held Passover seders for hundreds of soldiers in Calcutta, India, and comforted those hospitalized with jungle fever in Burma. He traveled the old Burma Road in a jeep with Christian chaplains, holding Sabbath services before sundown to avoid the malaria-bearing mosquitoes that emerged at nightfall. Although Rabbi Seligson went on to achieve national prominence, his chaplaincy to soldiers in wartime was his touchstone. ''I feel that it was the greatest work that I have done in my entire ministry,'' he wrote in his memoir, ''Rabbi, Chaplain and Burra Sahib.'' Edgewear, tip of bottom corner of front cover is worn, light soil to blank back cover.
