As president of the Constitutional Convention, and as president of the nascent United States, Washington received several letters from members of the tiny American Jewish community. These fascinating letters tells us a great deal about the way in which Jews saw the promise of the Constitution; and the astounding way in which Washington responded allows us to better understand the essence of the American idea, and what we commemorate on Constitution Day in our age.
