The White House announced this week that Barack and Michelle Obama will host the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month.
The White House has celebrated May as Jewish American Heritage month since the George Bush administration, but this is the first time that the President and the First Lady will host a White House reception to honor the event. In his proclamation, the President said the United States is a "stronger and more hopeful country because so many Jews from around the world have made America their home.” The reception guest list will include "a range of community leaders and prominent Jewish Americans," the White House announced, but the menu and other details were not released.
