In May, BUSD celebrates Jewish American Heritage Month, lifting up and honoring the contributions of Jewish Americans in our school community, our extended communities, and our country.
These reading lists, organized by grade level, represent recently published books that celebrate Jewish-American heritage, affirm identity, and promote cultural awareness. Sharing these books is one part of our effort to develop a diverse consciousness with and for our youth and ensure they know they are not alone, and that they can speak out to help stop the spread of bigotry.

Lifting Up BUSD Staff Jewish American Voices – May 2022
In celebration of our Jewish American community, BUSD has introduced “Lifting Up Jewish American Voices,” a campaign to share our Jewish American staff narratives with our students and community by creating posters featuring their stories and experiences. Later this month, these posters will be displayed around the district, on the BUSD website, in social media, and in district publications. Sharing these narratives with our students will allow them to deepen connections with Jewish American staff in BUSD.
Please check back soon for additional posters.
