Federal Register :: Jewish American Heritage Month, 2018

Proclamation 9731 of April 30, 2018 A Proclamation

During Jewish American Heritage Month, we celebrate the profound contributions that the Jewish faith and its traditions have had on our Nation. Two hundred years ago, in April 1818, Mordecai Noah delivered his famous discourse before the members of America’s first synagogue, Congregation Shearith Israel, upon the consecration of their new house of worship. Reflecting on Jewish history as well as on the unique rights and privileges afforded to American Jews, Noah proclaimed that, for the first time in eighteen centuries, it may be said that the Jew feels he was born equal, and is entitled to equal protection; he can now breathe freely.

Jewish Americans have helped guide the moral character of our Nation. They have maintained a strong commitment to engage deeply in American society while also preserving their historic values and traditions. Their passion for social justice and showing kindness to strangers is rooted in the beliefs that God created all people in his image and that we all deserve dignity and peace. These beliefs have inspired Jewish Americans to build mutual-support societies, hospitals, and educational institutions that have enabled them and their fellow Americans to advance American society. Jewish Americans marched for civil rights in Selma and fought for the freedom of their brethren behind the Iron Curtain. Through their actions, they have made the world a better place.

The contributions of the Jewish people to American society are innumerable, strengthening our Nation and making it more prosperous. American Jews have proudly served our country in all branches of government, from local to Federal, and they have defended our freedom while serving in the United States Armed Forces. The indelible marks that American Jews have left on literature, music, cinema, and the arts have enriched the American soul. In their enduring tradition of generosity, Jewish Americans have established some of the largest philanthropic and volunteer networks in the Nation, providing humanitarian aid and social services to those in need at home and abroad, acting as a light unto the nations. Universities and other institutions around the country proudly display Nobel prizes won by Jewish Americans in the fields of medicine, chemistry, physics, and economics.

In reaction to Mordecai Noah’s 1818 discourse, Thomas Jefferson wrote that American laws protect our religious as they do our civil rights by putting all on an equal footing. 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.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim May 2018 as Jewish American Heritage Month. I call upon all Americans to celebrate the heritage and contributions of American Jews and to observe this month with appropriate programs, activities, and ceremonies.Start Printed Page 19600

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this thirtieth day of April, in the year of our Lord two thousand eighteen, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-second.

rhmonth.org – 16th Annual Russian Heritage Month

The Annual Russian Heritage Month celebrates and honors the rich diversity of cultural traditions brought to the U.S. from the many countries of the former Soviet Union. The Russian-speaking community plays an indispensable role in the culture, economic and social life of New York, the US and the world. The Annual Russian Heritage Month honors their contributions and affords the opportunity to showcase their talents. The Annual Russian Heritage Month has become a unifying force of our community by allowing its members, who hail from across the former Soviet Union, to preserve their heritage, culture, and language while also expressing their cultural identity.

The annual celebration of arts and culture takes place throughout the month of June in New York City. The Annual Russian Heritage Month is the only event of its kind in the U.S. and every year attracts a large diverse audience to enjoy diverse cultural events, such as contemporary and folk music, dance performances, art exhibitions, public festivals, health and sports fairs, business expos, and more.

The Annual Russian Heritage Month was established by the Russian American Foundation in collaboration with The City of New York, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, and the Daily News in 2003. The festival began as a week-long series of events, celebrating cultural andeconomic contributions of the Russian-speaking community of New York. Over the years, the international Russian-speaking communityhas become a vital part of the celebration by participating in events and attending as special guests from the art, fashion, Foreign Service and business worlds.RAF is greatly honored to partner with the New York Post in presenting the Annual Russian Heritage Month for the last six years.

Over the past 15 years the Annual Russian Heritage Month has grown into an internationally recognized month-long celebration dedicated to promoting cross-community awareness, as well as a valuable local, national and international dialogue between peoples and cultures. The Annual Russian Heritage Month traditionally opens with a reception at the Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art attended by the Mayor of New York City and culminates with Together in New York Annual Community Festival and Health and Sport Fair in Brooklyn, NY.

In celebration of the 15th anniversary ofAnnual Russian Heritage Month (June, 2017), RAFwas honored by the Mayor of the City of New York Bill de Blasio and the First Lady Chirlane McCray with the reception hosted in historical Gracie Mansion.

Presented as part of theAnnual Russian Heritage Month, the Russian Heritage Festival continues the exciting tradition of celebrating the legacy and achievements of the First, Second and Third Waves of the Russian-speakingmigrs from former Soviet Republics to the United States through a variety of open to public cultural events concerts, exhibitions, literature events and film screenings.While finding new home overseas, those generations of Russian-Americans kept deep ties with their home country and put forth tireless efforts to preserve their heritage and cultural identity.

In the United States we are Americans first but take equal pride in our individual and community heritage. And groups that tie those of common heritage together will inevitably strengthen our society at large. Shai Baitel, Proud Community, Proud Americans, Huffington Post, 11/22/2014

Maher: ‘The Deep State Should Be the Man of the Year’

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher argued that the “deep state” should be TIME Magazine’s man of the year. Maher said, “[W]hen he [President Trump] attacks the deep state, I always think, the deep state, first of all, you know, TIME Magazine has man of the year, even though it’s sometimes a computer or a group of people…the deep state should be the man of the year.” Maher added that the “deep state” is the government and people like former Director of the NSA and the CIA Gen. Michael Hayden (Ret.), former DNI James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, and former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe.

Dershowitz: Manafort Will ‘Probably’ Be Convicted

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “AC360,” Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz argued that Paul Manafort will “probably” be convicted. Dershowitz said, “Look, Manafort was smart not waiving venue because he’s much better off with Judge Ellis and a Virginia jury than he would be with a judge who revoked his bail in Washington, DC, and a DC jury, which is going to be largely Democrat. And so — but it gives the prosecutions two shots, and it’s risky on both sides. But in the end, they will probably get a conviction, and probably try very hard to squeeze Manafort. We can’t know at this point whether Manafort will, A sing or compose, and B whether he’d be pardoned.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
