    Today, singer/songwriter Regina Spektor will perform at The White House for the first ever White House reception in honor of Jewish American Heritage Month, which celebrates 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" said 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 representing the many walks of life that have helped weave the fabric of American history. Invitees include a range of community leaders and prominent Jewish Americans from Olympians and professional athletes to members of Congress, business leaders, authors and military veterans. Congrats to Miss Spektor for being granted the opportunity to perform.
