I didn’t know it was Jewish American Heritage Month this month. Did you? They don’t publicize it a lot, but it’s true. . . we have our very own month! And there are lots of reasons to celebrate!
By Congressional resolution and Presidential proclamation, MAY is Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM). JAHM is a national month of recognition of the more than 360-year history of Jewish contributions to American culture. JAHM acknowledges the achievements of American Jews in fields ranging from sports and arts and entertainment to medicine, business, science, government, and military service. This year, the theme is American Jews in Medical Research.
The groundbreaking medical research conducted by these dedicated individuals, among countless others, continues to improve and save lives. The JAHM Website features stories of Jewish Americans that were selected for their contributions to and impact on the American public. Learn more here.
Hope you enjoy the rest of JAHM and that you are your family have a Happy Shavuot (a holiday that begins tonight and goes through tomorrow that commemorates the giving of the Torah)
