North Coast-Nahariya Talk by Elkan Levy

ESRA North Coast Nahariya


Jews Fighting Jews: American Jewry and the Civil War 1861-65

with Elkan Levy


The American Civil War was the first great conflict of modern times, and the most significant event in the shaping of contemporary America. In both North and South, Jews eagerly rushed forwards to join their fellow-citizens, while Rabbis on both sides mobilized the Bible to support opposing ideologies.

Jews reached high political office as well, and by the end of the war American Jewry was more deeply integrated into US society.

Educated in London, Israel and New York; Elkan is well-known as a dynamic lecturer who is deeply interested in British and World Jewry, its past and its future. He believes passionately in the unity of the Jewish people, and the religious imperative of speaking to all Jews, of all levels of observance and none.
