Celebrating Jewish American Heritage

Jewish American Heritage Banner

Jewish American History

  • Every year, by Presidential Proclamation, May is Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM) in recognition of the indelible contributions American Jews have made, and continue to make, to our nation’s history, culture, and society.

    Each year, this national celebration shows the ways in which this history deserves our collective attention, pride, and recognition.

    The stories of American Jewish life are quintessential American stories of resilience, aspiration, imagination, determination, and achievement.
