The FOJC invites you to become a part of American and Jewish history. Nearly 1 million visitors come to the Naval Academy each year, and the Levy Center and Jewish Chapel has become a significant focus of those visits.
FOJC welcomes your support, which will enable Jewish Midshipmen to celebrate their Jewish heritage. The Center exposes the entire Brigade to Jewish history, culture, and knowledge through its Library and Media Center, as well as its exciting programs, becoming a hub for Jewish life and the military. It highlights Jewish contributions to American society and helps promote understanding among diverse groups at the Academy and within the entire fleet.
Please help the FOJC demonstrate our pride in the Jewish Midshipmen who are committed to serving America and providing leadership in the Jewish community. This is a unique opportunity to mark your place in Jewish-American history. By making a contribution, you become a link in the chain that binds the past to the future.
The Commodore Uriah P. Levy Center is a shining beacon overlooking the Severn River. Housing the Miller Chapel, Stein Fellowship Hall, a conference center and the Honor Court for the Naval Academy, this magnificent facility is proudly used for Jewish religious activities and special Naval Academy events.
Through the FOJC, opportunities exist to enhance the educational experience of the Midshipmen. From international trips to Rosh HaShana and Passover services, the FOJC continues to provide extraordinary programming to an already exceptional Academy education.
Contributions to the FOJC program endowment will enable the Jewish Chaplain to promote strength and character that exemplifies the Navy. Jewish Midshipmen, and the entire brigade, enjoy the lecture series, networking opportunities and social gatherings that make the Levy Center a focal point of the Naval Academy.
For more information on how you can participate in these programs, please contact the FOJC for greater details.
