NATIONAL EDUCATION AND SHARING DAY
Observed Annually (11th day of the month of Nisan on the Jewish calendar) is National Education and Sharing Day.
In his 2009 proclamation on Education and Sharing Day, President Barack Obama wrote:
“Few have better understood or more successfully promoted these ideas than Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Lubavitcher Rebbe, who emphasized the importance of education and good character. Through the establishment of educational and social service institutions across the country and the world, Rabbi Schneerson sought to empower young people and inspire individuals of all ages. On this day, we raise his call anew.”
On March 21, 2013, while making his first trip to Israel as president, a proclamation was issued, and President Barack Obama declared March 22, 2013, Education and Sharing Day, U.S.A. This year is the 111th anniversary of the birth of the Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson. Reinforcing the importance of education, in this proclamation, the President stated:
“We also know that learning does not stop when students leave the classroom. Whether at the dinner table or on the field, it is our task as parents, teachers, and mentors to make sure our children grow up practicing the values we preach. We have an obligation to instill in them the virtues that define our national character — honesty and independence, drive and discipline, courage and compassion.”

This day was first inaugurated on April 18, 1978, by President Jimmy Carter and has since been proclaimed annually, by the presiding President. National Education and Sharing Day is a day that was made by the United States Congress in honor of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (1902 – 1994). It honors his efforts for education and sharing for Jews and non-Jews alike. During his lifetime, the Rabbi opened many centers of education. These centers were called “Chabad Houses.”
