The Presidents of the United States and the Jews with Dr. David Dalin
The Presidents of the United States and the Jews mines the historical record to document the relationships between U.S. Presidents and the prominent Jews of their day, ranging from Haym Solomon, who helped George Washington finance the American Revolution, to Senator Joseph Lieberman, who was chosen by Vice President Al Gore to be the first Jewish nominee on a national ticket.
“A fascinating, well-organized and highly readable compendium of little known information concerning America’s Presidents and the Jews. Filled with surprises, this book helps to explain what made America different for Jews, and how, since the days of George Washington, Jews and American presidents have interacted.”
