Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein honoree of Jewish American Heritage Month at Capitol Hill

June 13, 2017 - 19 Sivan 5777

Jewish American Heritage Month is an annual recognition and celebration of Jewish American achievements in and contributions to the United States of America during the month of May. President George W. Bush first proclaimed the month in April 2006.

This year, members of Chamah participated in the event held at the Senate Caucus Room on Capitol Hill honoring their dear friend, the world-famous Rabbi Yechiel Eckstein, Founder and President of IFCJ.

Prominent members of the U.S. Senate participated and heralded the accomplishments of this year’s honorees as well as Congress members from both parties.

After gourmet dinner several of our supporters had a private meeting with Senator Bill Cassidy in his chamber, which was very congenial and productive.
