Being a U. S. Marine can be tough. Being an observant Jew in the Marines can be tougher. Find out more at a special Shabbat (Friday) evening program.

Shabbat with a Jewish-Marine-Comic Twist

Being a Marine can be tough, an observant Jew in the Marines can be tougher!

Lt. Col. Dave Rosner, USMC

Please join us this Friday evening March 11th at 6:00 pm at Chabad of NW Metro Denver 4505 W 112th Ave. Westminster CO for a Kabalat Shabbat, kiddush and refreshments followed by a special presentation by Dave (David Natan) Rosner, a Lieutenant Colonel in the U. S. Marines.

Dave is a stand-up comedian who served in both the first Gulf War and the Iraq War. He has several specialties in the Marines, two of which are as an Intelligence Officer and Public Affairs (Media) Officer. He served over four years active duty and has been in the reserves ever since.

Being a U. S. Marine can be tough. Being an observant Jew in the Marines can be tougher. Dave Rosner describes what it’s like to wear a yarmulke while in uniform, keep kosher while stationed in Arab deserts and Korean mountains, display a public menorah on a Marine Base in Hawaii and much more. Join Dave as he shares his story and the possibility of maintaining a strong Jewish identity regardless of your surroundings.

Dave was raised in Albuquerque New Mexico and has lived in Hawaii, Israel, Australia and New York City. He is currently based in Los Angeles and NYC.

Dave Rosner is the only Jewish Marine Comedian. “When he kills, nobody dies.”
