Each year, in the Russell Senate Office Building’s Kennedy Caucus Room, U.S. legislators participate in a Jewish American Heritage Month Celebration. This year, while we can’t gather in person, our bi-partisan representatives from across the country will offer reflections on the importance of celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month and the diversity of our country.

In addition to honoring Jewish American Heritage Month, legislators and other distinguished guests will pay tribute to 2021 Capitol Hill JAHM Celebration honoree, Abe Foxman, former longtime director of the Anti-Defamation League.
