US Army and Navy chaplains perform Passover Seder
Continuation of Story 4376. Members of the US Army and Navy celebrate Passover, perhaps in Hawaii (the originating unit is the 7th Hawaii). A woman identified in the NARA storycard as Mrs. Linczer lights candles. An Army and a Navy chaplain stand beside her. Officers and chaplains perform the ceremony. A view of the crowded hall. A slate identifies the cameraman as Sgt. Shivers and reads: "Jewish Passover APO 953 7th CCU 4-7-44." More shots of the ceremony. The participants seem very aware of the camera. Close-up shots of wine being poured, lit candles. Overhead shots of sailor and soldiers reading and then talking.
