Last week Pennsylvanians selected a new governor, and across the country Americans chose who would represent them in Congress. Today is Veterans Day and we honor our brave soldiers who put themselves into harms way in order defend our democracy.
Unfortunately, many Americans take our freedoms for granted, and voter turnout overall this year was only 36.3% - the lowest since World War II.
Democracy is not a spectator sport. Honor the sacrifice of our veterans and get involved in your community and in the causes that concern you.
For more on the election, our veterans and our community, please be sure to read the latest news from the Philadelphia Jewish Voice and support us by donating online. Thank you. 


Jewish veterans will be honored today at the National Harbor in Maryland.
