“Education must be more than just training in facts and figures. It must also include instructions in the deepest ethical values of our civilization.”
— President Ronald Reagan

“The Rebbe’s devotion to educating people worldwide and his profound respect for diversity, inclusiveness, and equal justice have set a strong example for generations of Americans and people across the globe.”
— President Joseph R. Biden

To emphasize the vital role of education in society, the United States annually marks "Education and Sharing Day U.S.A."

Established in 1978 by a joint Congressional resolution, Education Day U.S.A. focuses on the very foundation of meaningful education: instructing our youth in the ways of morality and ethics, and teaching them an appreciation for divine inviolable values.

The Presidents, in conjunction with the Washington, D.C. based American Friends of Lubavitch, designate annually Education and Sharing Day U.S.A. on the anniversary of the birth of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, of righteous memory, who dedicated his life to the cause of education.

In this section we present you with a blueprint for meaningful education, some of the Rebbe's talks on the importance of education and a brief history of the establishment and yearly commemoration of "Education and Sharing Day U.S.A."
