A group of students from Texas A&M University, Texas State University, and Rice University are in New York city for Shabbat to participate in Jewfest, Chabad on Campus’ annual convention. As they toured Manhattan today, they bumped into four sailors who were giving out floral bouquets in honor of Veteran’s day. The group thanked the sailors for their service, and discovered that one of the sailors had a Jewish grandmother. They proceeded to help him put on Tefillin for the first time in his life, and danced together to celebrate.
