10/18 - in Association with One Day University, Brotherhood presents:

A Jewish Founding Father? Alexander Hamilton’s Hidden Life 
ANDREW PORWANCHER – UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA 


“Thousands of miles from the Old World, on a sun-kissed island in the 
West Indies, a young boy named Alexander Hamilton began a most 
unlikely journey in the 1750s. His meteoric rise from Caribbean 
obscurity to American founder has long captivated historians and, more 
recently, Broadway audiences. Yet one crucial aspect of Hamilton's 
life has remained submerged for centuries: the weight of the evidence 
suggests that he was in fact Jewish. 

“Drawing on untapped sources in the West Indies, Professor Porwancher 
makes the case for Hamilton's Jewish ancestry and explores his ongoing 
relationships with Jews throughout his lifetime. Although he cast off 
any Jewish identity in his adulthood in the United States, Hamilton 
never forgot his origins. He emerged as a singular champion of 
American Jewry against the forces of anti-Semitism. Hamilton fought 
for Jewish rights in the courts, collaborated with Jewish merchants, 
and secured a position for the first Jew on the board of an American college. “

About Larchmont Temple Brotherhood

The LT Brotherhood originally formed in 1948 – the same year as Larchmont Temple and of course, the State of Israel. Our membership is comprised of women and men who want to support our mission of Educating, Entertaining, and Inspiring the LT Community. We develop and sponsor community-building events that support Judaism and Jewish life through a stimulating and varied lecture series, an annual blood drive, our Yom Hashoah Candle Program, and partnering with the School and Youth Boards. LTB is a member of the North American Federation of Temple Brotherhoods, a coalition of over 250 affiliated brotherhoods with 25,000 members across North America, dedicated to tikkun olam "repairing the world" through the practice of Brotherhood. LTB is also a member of the Men of Reform Judaism (MRJ)

Brotherhood invites any Temple member interested in learning more about what we do to attend a Brotherhood Board Meeting. They are usually held on the first Monday of the Month at 7:30 pm.  Anyone interested in slicing bagels for a breakfast or assembling boxes for Yom Hashoah Candles or helping out at a blood drive, please let us know.

To help members new to the Temple Community, we provide Brotherhood memberships free of charge for First-Year Temple Members. For more information or to get involved, contact brotherhood@larchmonttemple.org.

Please join us at Brotherhood Breakfasts and other events (see below for details).
