This Week in History


This Week in History - Add a badge to your web site or blog

Let's have fun with history. If you add this badge, or widget, anywhere on your webpage or blog, each time the page is viewed the widget will display the introduction to a random event tied to the current week, pulled out of our history database. Reload the page, and a different event will appear. If you know of an event that should be in the database, and isn't, Contact Us, tell us about it, and let us know if you might be able to write it up for us.

During Jewish American Heritage Month (May), we try to emphasize the breadth and variety of Jewish American History, so we change the behavior. In May this widget acts more like a calendar. A single new item appears each day, it doesn't change when the page is refreshed, the graphic changes to celebrate the month, and the badge is retitled This Day of Jewish American Heritage.
