Tonight, May 27, Regina Spektor will perform at The White
House for the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American
Heritage Month. Spektor will join President Obama and his wife to “celebrate
the range and depth of the Jewish American heritage and contributions to
American culture.”

“Having moved to America
from Soviet Russia as a child with my family, we dreamed of reconnecting with
our religious traditions and of making America our home” says Spektor,
in a statement. “Having lived here for over twenty years, it is an
unimaginable honor to be invited to the White House by President Barack Obama
and First Lady Michelle Obama, to an event celebrating Jewish Americans, and to
be counted among them. Nothing in the world could make us feel more accepted
and at home!”

The celebration will take place in The White House with guests including a
range of community leaders and prominent Jewish Americans from Olympians and
professional athletes to members of Congress, business leaders, authors and
military veterans.
