The Jewish month of Iyar is a time of pride for American Jews. Today, Yom Hazikaron, we member those who have fallen to defend Israel, and tonight begins Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel Independence Day. This year the Jewish State celebrates its 66th birthday.
Meanwhile, we are grateful to be acknowledged by Jewish American Heritage Month, highlighting the role that our community has played in the history and success of the United States.
