Jewish American Heritage Month

Each year, during the month of May, the Copyright Alliance proudly celebrates Jewish American Heritage Month! This heritage month was first introduced by Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida and Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania in hopes that the President would recognize the contributions of Jewish culture to American culture. In 2006, President George W. Bush officially proclaimed May as Jewish American Heritage Month.

On April 28, 2023, the White House issued a proclamation on Jewish American heritage month stating, “This month, we celebrate the enduring heritage of Jewish Americans, whose values, culture, and contributions have shaped our character as a Nation.  For generations, the story of the Jewish people — one of resilience, faith, and hope in the face of adversity, prejudice and persecution — has been woven into the fabric of our Nation’s story.  It has driven us forward in our ongoing march for justice, equality, and freedom as we recommit to upholding the principles of our Nation’s founding and realizing the promise of America for all Americans.”

Join us to celebrate the rich history and contributions of Jewish Americans this May by checking out our blogs, articles, educational resources, and artistic creations.
