May Is Jewish American Heritage Month

Jewish American Heritage Month wraps up today, and as we are witnessing an unprecedented global rise in antisemitism and hate, it is especially important to highlight the diversity and vibrancy of our Jewish community, including here in Miami-Dade County. Federation, in collaboration with local and prominent voices, has been publishing stories on social media that celebrate the strength and breadth of our community and values. Partners, including Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava, Rabbi Mario Rojzman, Rabbi Judith Siegal and Rabbi Eliezer Wolf shared individual reels discussing their Jewish journeys, how their Jewish values and belief systems shaped their lives and influential Jewish leaders they admire.

Additionally, Federation and our Jewish Community Relations Council were honored to support Miami-Dade County Commission’s decision to proclaim May as Jewish American Heritage Month locally, for the second consecutive year. County Commissioner Micky Steinberg was the prime sponsor of the proclamation and Senator Rene Garcia was the co-sponsor.
