Celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month

Join Corwin in celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month and those who have influenced and shaped American communities, life, and culture for over 350 years. It is important we honor and celebrate our Jewish American neighbors while understanding the fight against religious and racial persecution in our country continues. For some, this month is your opportunity to share, learn, and understand. For others, this may be a chance to start a conversation and use connections from the past to inspire a more sympathetic future. Whichever way you decide to celebrate, Corwin is right by your side.

Below are some ways for you to bring Jewish American Heritage Month to your classroom, school, and community.
