    A historic event occurred in Cincinnati, as the city’s council voted unanimously to make an official resolution to establish Education Day on 11 Nissan. Last month the city’s mayor proclaimed Education Day, however the city council’s resolution makes the proclamation binding.

    The difference between a proclamation and resolution: A proclamation is a “day” that is “proclaimed” for an event, person, or organization by the Mayor’s office. It is non-binding and has no vote by Council. A resolution indicates the position of City Council and is voted on by the Council. This means that it will be in the record of Council minutes and it is the official stance of the Council.

    Rabbi Gershon Avtzon, and the Talmidei Hashluchim, of Yeshivas Lubavitch Cincinnati went to city hall to receive the resolution from City Council. Rabbi AVtzon arranged that Rabbi Shalom B. Kalmanson, senior shliach of Cincinnati, should address the council and explain the significance of the Education Day.

    A quote from the resolution: “WHEREAS, the President of the United States, in conjunction with the Washington, D.C.-based American Friends of Lubavitch, annually designates Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A. on the anniversary of the birth of the Lubavitcher Rebbe Melech Hamoshiach, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who dedicated his life to the cause of education, and this year we celebrate the 120th birthday of the Rebbe on April 12, 2022”

    The delegation then distributed Matzah to the Jewish members of Council, with the new “My Story 2” book from JEM, and even celebrated the “Bar-Mitzvah” of one the Jewish city-council members.
