Jewish American Heritage Month Enters Sixth Year

Following on the tail of Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israeli Independence Day,) I’m expecting U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.)’s annual press release for the stateside Jews any day now! Meanwhile, I’ve gone digging myself through my grad school’s digital archive to contribute a little something—an image of the yearbook page from the first anum where Hillel was a club at the University of Maryland College Park (1940. Hillel itself came into existence in 1923 in Champaign, Ill. Click here to read a booklet on Hillel’s history, including rare documents and photos from the archive. B’nai B’rith International, which Hillel was part of until the end of the last century, published a list of 31 days of Jewish facts and firsts to coincide with the heritage month. And click here to view the UMD 1940 yearbook in full.)

The Jewish American Heritage Website has been updated with events and exhibits taking place around the Washington, D.C. area. Also check out JAHM sites at the National Endowment for the Humanities, The National Park Service and The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

And in local fare, a look at what’s coming up at The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington:

May 3: Book Reading: When General Grant Expelled the Jews, in partnership with the National Archives, co-sponsored by the DCJCC, National Museum of American Jewish Military History, Jewish War Veterans, Jewish Community Relations Council, Foundation for Jewish Studies and Washington Jewish Week

May 6: Walking Tour, Arlington National Cemetery

May 8: Exhibition Lecture: Jewish Washington: Scrapbook of an American Community,, hosted at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library
