Commack JCC spotlights role of Jews in the military; servicewomen’s exhibit to begin soon.
It’s home to the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, where such outstanding athletes as Mark Spitz and Sandy Koufax are immortalized as hero athletes.
Now the Suffolk Y JCC in Commack is trumpeting an exhibit featuring another kind of hero -- Jewish members of the U.S. military from World War II to the present day.
“A lot of times we make heroes out of sports people, but these are the real heroes, the men and women who put their lives on the line everyday,” said Alan Freedman, the Y’s associate executive director.
