  • Includes unique article that discusses all the presidencies and all the Jewish presidential appointees and advisers

  • Includes groundbreaking, visionary article from 1980 on the attempt of the Nazis to march in Skokie, Illinois (a Chicago suburb with a large number of Holocaust survivors) in 1977. The ACLU on the grounds of “free speech” decided to defend their right to march. This article was published in 1980 in the American Jewish Year Book, drew a lot of attention, and was prescient on today’s issue of free speech, “hate speech,” and the limits of liberalism, and how antisemitism in the US might be rising again.

  • Discusses Jews prominent in philanthropy, intellectual life, and even baseball.

  • Discusses a time before 1930s and the New Deal when surprisingly, most Jews were Republicans.
