Coming Soon: Portable Challah & Manischewitz

Stars & Stripes has reported about the recent efforts of the U.S. Army Chaplain Corps to develop portable ritual items.

As of now, they have only developed portable sacraments (communion wafers and wine or juice), but “Soldier Spiritual Readiness Packets” are also in the works for us Jews as well.

They come in a peel-and-serve package, “no larger than the single-serve cheese spread and crackers packages in vending machines.” The Jewish package has a Jewish prayer book and a yarmulke made of desert or woodland camouflage material.

You can see a photo of the packet on the Stars & Stripes wesbiste.
