President and Governors Honored Lubavitch Rebbe With Education Day Proclamations reports that on March 27, President Donald Trump met in the Oval Office with a delegation of Chabad-Lubavitch rabbis to issue a Presidential Proclamation (full text) declaring the day "Education and Sharing Day."  This follows the tradition of every president since 1978 of issuing a similar proclamation to mark the birthday on the Jewish calendar of Chabad's former leader, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson.  This year for the first time, similar proclamations have been issued by the governors of all 50 states.
