Marking the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and Abraham Lincolnís assassination, the New-York Historical Society, in partnership with The Shapell Manuscript Foundation, presented the exhibition Lincoln and the Jews, on view March 20 through June 7, 2015. Through several never-before-exhibited original writings by Lincoln and his Jewish contemporaries, the exhibition brings to light Lincolnís little-known relationship with the Jewish community and its lasting personal and national implications. The exhibition is inspired by the publication of Lincoln and the Jews: A History (Thomas Dunne Books, March 2015), by Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, Joseph H. & Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History at Brandeis University, and Benjamin Shapell, founder of The Shapell Manuscript Foundation.
Organized by The Shapell Manuscript Foundation, the evening reception featured remarks by Rabbi David Wolpe, Sinai Temple, Los Angeles; Leon Wieseltier, author of Kaddish; and Dr. Jonathan D. Sarna, co-author of Lincoln and the Jews: A History. Tours of the exhibition will be offered throughout the evening.
Who: Pam Schafler, Chair of the Board of Trustees, New-York Historical Society; Louise Mirrer, President and CEO, New-York Historical Society; Harold Holzer, Chief Historical Advisor to the exhibition; Benjamin Shapell, founder of The Shapell Manuscript Foundation.
Special Guests: Jean and William Soman, Edward and Sandra Meyer, Louise Kerz Hirschfeld and Lewis B. Cullman, Sid and Ruth Lapidus, Helen Nash, Bernard Schwartz and Ruth Messinger
