A reminder of our heritage:

These words were written by President George Washington to the Jewish congregation of Newport RI

in August 1790:

“For happily the Government of the United States gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”
