Special Events, Lectures and Presentations:
Thursday, February 4, 2010 @ 12:45
Abe Lincoln and the Jews presented by Joe Oppenheimer. Learn about our 16th President’s fascinating relationship with American Jews. Our speaker, Joe Oppenheimer, spent five days in Springfield, Illinois, site of the Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library and subsequently spent months researching the Jewish aspects of Lincoln’s life.
Abraham Lincoln is ranked by many polls as one of the greatest US Presidents. Lincoln’s record as one of our mostly highly regarded presidents has been rekindled and refocused by the election and inauguration of President Obama. However, his historic relationship with American Jews remains widely unknown. Several of Lincoln’s closest friends, confidants and supporters were Jewish. Lincoln also immediately revoked the first official anti-semitic law in the United States.
