May is Jewish American Heritage Month. This month, we are celebrating the rich history and lives of Jewish Americans. “L’dor v’dor”, or “from generation to generation,” is a central phrase of Jewish custom and refers to the responsibility of passing on history, values, tradition, and wisdom from generation to generation. During Jewish American Heritage Month, we are sharing resources from our Jewish American community, to strengthen the bonds between and among our community for generations to come.
