Jewish American Heritage Month

Celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month at the White House: Looking toward the future

This year’s White House celebration of Jewish American Heritage month was a simpler affair than in years past. The program was President Obama, and his remarks were brief.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg—a fitting culmination for Jewish American Heritage Month

As you know if you read the Jewish Women’s Archive blog, May is Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM).

Guess who's going to the White House?

According to Haaretz, everyone is trying to figure out who is on the guest list for the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month. We have heard that big-name Jews in the arts, sports, and other fields will be there. There have been whispers about Sandy Koufax, Judy Blume, and Dara Torres, as well as activists and scientists.

We don't know about Judy Blume or Dara Torres, but we can give you a BIG HINT about one woman attending!

Happy May Day!

Today is May 1, which, in addition to being an old pagan holiday celebrating the start of summer, is also International Workers’ Day and the start of the second annual Jewish American Heritage Month.
