Did you celebrate these this month? Jewish American Heritage Month and/or Asian Pacific American Heritage Month

In May we celebrate both Asian Pacific American Heritage Month and Jewish American Heritage Month

In a country as diverse as the U.S., there are so many ethnicities to be celebrated.

I almost let May end without mentioning two of these.

The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum pay tribute to the generations of Jewish Americans and Asian and Pacific Islanders who have enriched America’s history and are instrumental in its future success.

They have updated the websites where these two heritages are celebrated.  Each website includes many resources that you will want to check out, especially the Exhibits and Collections tabs which includes mentions of resources located at each repository previously named as well as articles, research guides, collection overviews and more.  Now that I said that, I also really enjoyed the images (I am always drawn to visual elements).  Then, I also checked out the “For Teachers” tab and that had some really neat stuff also.  You know what, just check out both sites since I couldn’t resist watching some old videos as well.

How did you celebrate these heritages this month?

Editor’s Note: In the past we have celebrated many different heritage months.  Here is a sampling of those posts ….
