President Declares May As Jewish American Heritage Month

Last week, President Obama issued a Proclamation (full text) declaring May as Jewish American Heritage Month. The Proclamation reads in part:
Jewish Americans, having shared in the struggle for freedom, have been instrumental in ensuring our Nation stays true to the principles enshrined in our founding documents. They have helped bring about enduring progress in every aspect of our society, shaping our country's character and embodying the values we hold dear.
Yesterday, Democratic leader Nancy Peolsi also issued a statement  on Jewish American Heritage Month.
