Celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month

In 2016, a Presidential proclamation and Congressional resolution named May Jewish American Heritage Month. Jewish American Heritage Month provides an opportunity for all Americans to celebrate and draw inspiration from the contributions that Jewish Americans have made to the fabric of our nation’s history and culture.
