Celebrating Jewish American Heritage Month
The month of May is Jewish American Heritage Month in the United States.
Throughout the course of this school year, it has been helpful to follow the framework of Acknowledgement, Education and engaging in ongoing Courageous Conversations to guide Aspen Academy along a path of infinite growth in the realm of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice work. Last month, the opportunity to engage both personally and professionally in an online Holocaust Remembrance Day event highlighted the need for each of us to bring intentionality in our efforts to raise our personal level of awareness and knowledge across multiple cultural identifiers, and in particular for the Jewish-American members of our Aspen Academy family. In following the guiding principle to "Never Forget Our Historical Past," we are grateful to extend this wonderful invitation to all Aspen Academy community members to join in this ongoing process of educating ourselves in ways that are specific to where we might be on our respective growth journeys.
