Obama called on all Americans to "commemorate the proud heritage of Jewish Americans with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
"Unyielding in the face of hardship and tenacious in following their dreams, Jewish Americans have surmounted the challenges that every immigrant group faces, and have made unparalleled contributions," Obama said.
He added, "Jewish American leaders have been essential to all branches and levels of government." [You betcha!!! And the media too!!!]
"Still more Jewish Americans have made selfless sacrifices in our Armed Forces," he said.
