May Jewish American Heritage Month

President Donald Trump proclaimed May Jewish American Heritage Month, continuing a tradition maintained by every president since 2006.

“During Jewish American Heritage Month, we celebrate our nation’s strong American Jewish heritage, rooted in the ancient faith and traditions of the Jewish people.
