We hope that you all had a great George Washington’s and/or Presidents Day!

American Presidents have a long history of supporting the Jewish State, including long before Israel declared her independence. According to the Jewish Virtual Library, “not long after the Emancipation Proclamation, President Abraham Lincoln met a Canadian Christian Zionist, Henry Wentworth Monk, who expressed hope that Jews who were suffering oppression in Russia and Turkey be emancipated ‘by restoring them to their national home in Palestine.‘ Lincoln said this was ‘a noble dream and one shared by many Americans.‘”

Even before that, John Adams stated, “… I really wish the Jews again in Judea an independent nation,” and John Quincy Adams wrote that he believed in the “rebuilding of Judea as an independent nation.”
