Jewish Women’s Archive is launching a new feature:This Day of American Jewish Heritage. The feature was created in honor of the 2nd annual celebration of Jewish American Heritage Month this May. This Day of American Jewish Heritage will connect every day in May to significant moments in American Jewish history, for example: the ordination of women rabbis, and the creation of a 21st century progressive mikveh (ritual bath).
Each entry in the daily feature includes dates and accompanying descriptions encompassing the range of achievements of American Jewish women historically and up through today, and also highlights significant developments in American Jewish life.
In addition to offering the content on their own website, www.jwa.org, JWA is also offering it as a feed that can be posted on any website. Sites will be able to offer daily headlines that would link back to JWA’s website for the full exposition of each entry, or to host the entire content for This Day of Jewish American Heritage. JWA is providing code (iFrame) for displaying this feature.
