Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM) came about on April 20, 2006. President George W. Bush proclaimed that May would be Jewish American Heritage Month then. It resulted from efforts by the Jewish Museum of Florida and South Florida Jewish community leaders who pushed for their elected leaders such as Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida and Senator Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania to support this initiative. Together, they urged Bush to determine a month, which would recognize all the Jewish contributions that have been made to our American culture. Such resolutions passed both in the House of Representatives in December of 2005 and in the Senate during February 2006.
The month of May was chosen because of the celebration of the 350th Anniversary of American Jewish History. This was coordinated by the Commission for Commemorating 350 Years of American Jewish History, which was composed of the American Jewish Historical Society, the Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives, the National Archives and Records Administration, and the Library of Congress.
Since it was created, programs for JAHM have occurred in many places across the country such as Washington, DC with the National Endowment for the Humanities and Smithsonian Institution. With its creation in March 2007, JAHM eventually became a tax-exempt public charity with a Board of Directors and regulated by the JAHM Advisory Committee in 2010. As a company, Sonic Alert has a great deal of Jewish customers.
