Happy 4th of July Everyone. America's Jewish Past! Did we forget that it was a Polish born Jew named...
Haym Salomon who financed the Revolutionary War. He was memorialzed in
a U.S. Postage Stamp issued in 1975. On the back of the stamp there is
a caption that reads: Businessman and broker Haym Salomon was
responsible for raising most of the money needed to finance the
American Revolution and later to save the new nation from collapse.
From 1781 on, Salomon brokered bills of exchangefor the American government and extended interest-free personal loans tomembers
of Congress, including James Madison. Shame on those Americans who do
not support Israel and the Jewish people. We would not be a nation were
it not for a Jew.By:Shabnam Hadassah Lal
