                Proclamation 7898 of May 5, 2005

                
Jewish Heritage Week, 2005

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                During Jewish Heritage Week, we celebrate and honor 
                Jewish Americans for their contributions to this 
                country and for helping to shape our national 
                character.

                The story of the Jewish people reflects the triumph of 
                faith, the importance of family, and the power of hope. 
                Through inspiring stories of personal sacrifice and 
                survival, the Jewish people have demonstrated 
                unyielding trust in a loving God and enduring faith in 
                human freedom.

                America is stronger and more hopeful because of the 
                industry, talent, and imagination of Jewish Americans 
                from around the world. Their commitment to excellence 
                in science, public service, law, athletics, literature, 
                and countless other fields has enriched our Nation and 
                enhanced our culture. Through strong ties to family and 
                community, Jewish Americans reflect a compassionate 
                spirit and set a positive example for others.

                We are also grateful for their legacy of selfless 
                service to our country. As our troops defend liberty 
                and justice abroad, we recognize Jewish Americans who 
                have answered the call to help keep our Nation secure 
                and build a more peaceful world. Their personal 
                courage, love of country, and devotion to duty are 
                helping to bring freedom and hope to millions who had 
                previously lived under tyranny.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by virtue of the authority 
                vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United 
                States, do hereby proclaim May 8 through May 15, 2005, 
                as Jewish Heritage Week. I urge all Americans to 
                celebrate the contributions of Jewish Americans to our 
                Nation and observe this week with appropriate programs 
                and activities.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                fifth day of May, in the year of our Lord two thousand 
                five, and of the Independence of the United States of 
                America the two hundred and twenty-ninth.
