Why is recognizing and celebrating

Jewish American Heritage Month important?

Celebrated annually in May, Jewish American Heritage Month is an opportunity to expand your community’s understanding of Jewish Americans and familiarize them with the resilience of Jews in the face of oppression, as well as their contributions to American history, society, and culture. An important way to promote education about the Jewish community is to encourage your school, synagogue, local government, or other institutions to officially recognize May as Jewish Heritage Month.
