Sen. Daphne Campbell Seeks to Declare Jewish American Heritage Week in the State of Florida
Aiming to broaden recognition of the rich history and culture Jewish Americans have contributed to North America and the state of Florida, state Senator Daphne Campbell (D- District 38) on Tuesday filed a resolution declaring the week of February 12th as Jewish American Heritage week in Florida.
“I am proud to sponsor the first-ever resolution in the Florida Senate declaring Jewish Heritage Week in the State of Florida. This resolution is important to me because in my district, I represent over 20% of Jewish Floridians and recognize the positive impact that the Jewish community plays in advancing the state of Florida,” said Senator Campbell.
The resolution pays tribute to the unique cultures, customs, and dynamic heritage that derived from Jewish Americans. If the measure is successful, Jewish American Heritage Week will be observed in Florida, February 12-16, 2018.
