Teacher Resources for JAHM and a Presidential Proclamation

The month of May is almost over, but teachers, educators, and families can take advantage of the free educational resources offered by Jewish American Heritage Month all year long!

From a recent Presidential proclamation: ““Jewish immigrants from all over the world wove new threads into our cultural fabric with rich traditions and indomitable faith, and their descendants pioneered incredible advances in science and the arts. Teachings from the Torah lit the way toward a more perfect Union, from women’s rights to workers’ rights to the end of segregation.” –President Barack Obama, May 2013

To read the full proclamation, visit the White House website at http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2013/04/30/presidential-proclamation-jewish-american-heritage-month-2013

The theme of 2013 is “American Jews in Entertainment”.

JAHM offers general studies curricula, timelines, speakers, contests, posters, activities, and other materials free for the asking. To see what is available, please visit http://www.jewishamericanheritagemonth.us/education.aspx

Funding for Whidbey Island Jewish Community was made possible, in part, by a grant from the Special Initiatives Fund of the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle.
