Menendez Co-Sponsors Resolution To Recognize The National Museum Of American Jewish History

Washington - Today, US Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) co-sponsored a resolution introduced by Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA) and cosponsored by Senator Robert Casey (D-PA) to recognize the National Museum of American Jewish History and acknowledge the importance of studying and preserving the Jewish experience in America (S.Res. 546). The National Museum of American Jewish History is the only museum dedicated to helping educate about the Jewish experience in America. In November of 2010, the Museum will open its new state-of-the-art facility with more than 29,000 square feet of exhibition space across from the Liberty Bell on Philadelphia's historic Independence Mall.

"Jewish Americans have been integral in weaving the fabric of our great nation, and that is a story that is important to share with everyone. This museum honors the history of a vibrant and important community whose experience underscores the values of freedom and opportunity that make ours such a great nation. Through this museum, we celebrate the diversity of our nation and highlight the rich history and contributions of the Jewish American community to American life." said Senator Menendez.
