Obama: “Teachings From The Torah Lit The Way Toward A More Perfect Union”


obama President Barack Obama released a statement in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month, taking place throughout May, noting, “Jewish immigrants from all over the world wove new threads into our cultural fabric with rich traditions and indomitable faith, and their descendants pioneered incredible advances in science and the arts. Teachings from the Torah lit the way toward a more perfect Union, from women’s rights to workers’ rights to the end of segregation.”

“Jewish Americans continue to guide our country’s progress as scientists and teachers, public servants and private citizens, wise leaders and loving parents. We see their accomplishments in every neighborhood, and we see them abroad in our unbreakable bond with Israel that Jewish Americans helped forge. More than 350 years have passed since Jewish refugees first made landfall on American shores. We take this month to celebrate the progress that followed, and the bright future that lies ahead,” Obama continued.

“No matter who you are, where you come from, or what faith you practice, all of us have an equal share in America’s promise,” he added.

Obama is reportedly considering appointing Jewish candidates to high-level positions in his administration. Deputy National Security Adviser Mike Froman is being considered for the post of United States Trade Representative, and Chicago businesswoman and activist Penny Pritzker is in the running for commerce secretary, according to Reuters.

    Yes, very unfortunately, the anti-Torah forces of the modern secular State of Israel have tried very hard to make, and have had some successes in making, a very UN-Jewish “Jewish” state!!

    To Comment #6. from “Clarifier”:


    Yes, as part of their admiration of our Torah HaKdosha, President Obama, Vice President Biden, their entire administration staffs, and all of their liberal Democrat associates, should certainly deeply contemplate WHAT our Torah HaKdosha says about the act of Toeiva and Toeiva (so-called) “marriage”!!

  7. Thank you Mr Presindent! America is a Great nation that has been good to the Jewish people we are greatful to be part of building this great nation.

    Our Creator is Just and blesses those that bless the seed of Abraham. America will shine and prosper because it has allowed the Jewish People to shine and prosper. G-d Bless America!

  8. To comment 8:

    Torah is not ingrained in the remarks of a nations secular establishment and Torah is not threatened by those who are not ready to atone for their sins. You are very naïve.
