May is Jewish American Heritage Month.
According to President’s Biden’s Proclamation, the first Jewish refugees arrived in America in 1654. Since that time, Jewish Americans have made great impacts on United States including Albert Einstein (theoretical physicist), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (Supreme Court Justice) as well as Hans and Margret Rey (the authors of Curious George). The Jewish culture is well represented in Eisenhower’s Kids World collection of fiction in both picture book and chapter book formats as well as in our nonfiction titles. So whether you are delving your family’s own roots or exploring a culture you are unfamiliar with, we’ve got some great books to share!
As part of this month long celebration, a selection of great books have been assembled for your online browsing pleasure, but do stop in the Library, we have even more books to recommend!
