There are basically four vestments or liturgical garments worn by Jewish chaplains (Figure 1-11). Since
there are presently few Jewish chaplains in the Army you will rarely have the opportunity to work with
one. You will always have to check with the chaplain regarding special requirements pertaining to the
Jewish vestments or liturgical garments.
