LUBAVITCH MOVEMENT_EDUCATION 1991 TRANSCRIPT

 --H.J.Res.104--

H.J.Res.104

One Hundred Second Congress of the United States of America

AT THE FIRST SESSION

Begun and held at the City of Washington on Thursday, the third day of January,

one thousand nine hundred and ninety-one

Joint Resolution

To designate March 26, 1991, as `Education Day, U.S.A.'.

Whereas Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical values and

principles which are the basis of civilized society and upon which our great

Nation was founded;

Whereas these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of society

from the dawn of civilization, when they were known as the Seven Noahide Laws;

Whereas without these ethical values and principles the edifice of civilization

stands in serious peril of returning to chaos;

Whereas society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of these

principles that has resulted in crises that beleaguer and threaten the fabric

of civilized society;

Whereas the justified preoccupation with these crises must not let the citizens

of this Nation lose sight of their responsibility to transmit these historical

ethical values from our distinguished past to the generations of the future;

Whereas the Lubavitch movement has fostered and promoted these ethical values

and principles throughout the world;

Whereas Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, leader of the Lubavitch movement,

is universally respected and revered and his eighty-ninth birthday falls on

March 26, 1991;

Whereas in tribute to this great spiritual leader, `the rebbe', this, his

ninetieth year will be seen as one of `education and giving', the year in

which we turn to education and charity to return the world to the moral and

ethical values contained in the Seven Noahide Laws; and

Whereas this will be reflected in an international scroll of honor signed by

the President of the United States and other heads of state: Now, therefore,

be it

 Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of

 America in Congress assembled, That March 26, 1991, the start of the ninetieth

 year of Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, leader of the worldwide Lubavitch movement,

 is designated as `Education Day, U.S.A.'. The President is requested to issue

 a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such

 day with appropriate ceremonies and activities.

Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Vice President of the United States and

President of the Senate.
