In May 2021, nearly 100 organizations around the U.S. will come together to help Americans of all backgrounds discover, explore, and celebrate the vibrant and varied American Jewish experience from the dawn of our nation to the present day.

The National Museum of American Jewish History, JAHM, is presenting an extensive series of online programs to celebrate Jewish American Heritage Month. View the programs HERE

Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks, is celebrated seven weeks after the second Passover Seder. Although Shavuot began as an ancient grain harvest festival, the holiday has been identified since biblical times with the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai. It is celebrated with all night readings of the Torah.
