President Proclaims May As Jewish American Heritage Month

Yesterday President Donald Trump issued a Presidential Proclamation (full text) declaring May 2018 as Jewish American Heritage Month.  The Proclamation reads in part:
The American Jewish community is a shining example of how enshrining freedom of religion and protecting the rights of minorities can strengthen a nation.  Through their rich culture and heritage, the Jewish people have triumphed over adversity and enhanced our country.  For this and many other reasons, the American Jewish community is deserving of our respect, recognition, and gratitude.
