Kulanu ("All of Us" in Hebrew), founded in 1994, is a non-profit organization which supports isolated and emerging Jewish communities around the world, many of whom have long been disconnected from the worldwide Jewish community.

Kulanu connects with these dispersed groups and individuals through networking. We raise awareness and support for emerging communities through education, research, and publications about their histories and traditions. Our connections help all of us enrich our Jewish lives.  

Kulanu works with groups in Uganda, Ghana, India, Latin America and other places to help dispersed remnants of the Jewish people.  Visit Kulanu's Communities page to read about many of these groups.

Click here to visit the Jewish American Heritage web site
The dream for a national month to celebrate Jewish contributions to American history began as an idea by one community in South Florida. Since then, the nation has come together to pass legislation in Congress and celebrate the Proclamation of Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM) by the President of the United States. Jewish American Heritage Month (JAHM) is a national month of recognition of the more than 350-year history of Jewish contributions to American culture, celebrated in May.  

Also visit the web site about Jewish American Heritage run jointly by The Library of Congress, The National Archives, National Endowment for the Arts, National Park Service, and the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.
