Since the Founding Fathers, Jews have played a key role in the politics of our country. A high-profile member of George Washington's Cabinet is believed to have been half-Jewish. Today, Jews occupy seats on the US Supreme Court, in Congress and in Presidential Cabinets far beyond their numbers in the US population. Join us for an in-depth discussion about the significant role that Jews have played in the political history of our nation and learn about the many Jews who have served as major players in American politics and how the Jewish experience in European politics has influenced Jewish political behavior.
