Jewish Patriotism & July 4th!

by Teréza Eliasz-Solomon (HeiressMommy™)

Today [4 July 2012] we celebrate the birth date of the U.S.A. nation and it is at this time ALL citizens of this great nation must come to terms with our REAL American story …that includes for me personally, the Jewish role in its founding.

Many – especially Sephardic – Jews fought against the British along side their Christian counterparts. Indeed Jews gave their life for the cause of freedom toward the founding of this new nation. My Solomon family has long been lead to believe and sought documentation that we are the descendants of Haym Solomon – the Jewish financier of the American Revolution. In fact my genealogist husband, C.Michael Eliasz-Solomon [who proudly legally took the/my  last name of Solomon January 2012] along with those we will soon be employing are planning to research and finally prove this to be true. Not only did this Jewish patriot, Solomon, help financially and physically by freeing prisoners from British Philadelphia jails but it has long been thought he designed our national seal. Many U.S. Presidents acknowledged the Jews contribution to founding of this country, including our first President George Washington.

Jewish Supreme Court Justice Brandeis believed the  Jewish ideals are of the highest American beliefs and philosophies. I myself have written [“An Exodus For ALL” @heiressmommy.wordpress.com] that our Jewish exodus from Egypt and slavery is EXACTLY the same as that driving force that propelled this United States of America to be founded. As we Jews have sought self determination and freedom from tyranny throughout our existence, so too did ALL that forged this nation, under G-d, indivisible with liberty and justice for ALL.

May G-d bless ALL people who seek freedom and justice and may G-d bless America!!!
