Issued for Temple Oheb Sholom’s Rosh Hashonah service, this is a detailed and most unusual production, seemingly produced just for the membership of this small Reform congregation located in Goldsboro, North Carolina. Recapping the history of the war, this booklet also recounts the war-efforts exerted by the local Jewish community, led by its Rabbi, Jerome Gerson Tolochko. Table of Contents: <<*>> The V-J Service. <<*>> The War with Japan. <<*>> Summary of the War with Germany. <<*>> Highlights of World War Two. <<*>> Jewish Contributions to the War Effort. <<*>> The War Effort of the Jewish Community of Goldsboro. Temple Oheb Sholom’s War-Time Rabbi. <<*>> Clippings. German-born Jerome Gerson Tolochko (1908-69) served as Rabbi in a number of synagogues in the South including in the states of Mississippi, North Carolina and South Carolina.
