Here's the Law As it Reads on the Books:
APPENDIX ONE

105 STAT. 44 PUBLIC LAW 102-14-MAR. 20,1991



Public Law 102-14

102d Congress

Joint Resolution



Mar. 20. 1991

[H.J Res 104] 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 thes 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
Lutbavitch 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.
