NEWS-Briefs Aish

Aish International honorees and staff celebrate with Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.).

Atlantan Jake Aronov was among the supporters of Aish International who celebrated Jewish American Heritage Month with an event May 20 in the Kennedy Caucus Room at the U.S. Capitol.

The Congressional Jewish Heritage Celebration highlighted the accomplishments of Aish, which was honored in a Senate resolution for having enriched U.S. society.

Aish’s impact in many American cities “demonstrates that in the United States, people may freely connect with their culture and religious heritage and contribute to the fabric of life in the United States,” according to the resolution.
Aish International received the Jewish Heritage Award, which it shared with Aronov and other major supporters. Aronov has been a leader in the Aish movement for many years and is a member of Aish International’s advisory board.

“Our partners are dedicated to providing inspiring and accessible Jewish education. Their unwavering support is the reason why we have made such a powerful impact across this great nation,” said Richard Boruch Rabinowitz, Aish’s executive director.
