President Obama kicked things off Saturday (which was another holiday as well) with a proclamation declaring that the United States will “celebrate this proud history and honor the invaluable contributions Jewish Americans have made to our nation” in the fine month of May. “Our Nation,” he wrote, “has always been both a haven and a home for Jewish Americans.”

There will be dozens of events around the country. To see if any are in your area, check the month’s official Website.
