Andrew Porwancher: The Jewish World of Alexander Hamilton (Virtual on Zoom)

July 24, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Virtual Program Virtual Program
Program Fee: Free

In partnership with the Contra Costa JCC

First debunking a string of myths about Hamilton’s origins, Prof. Andrew Porwancher arrives at a startling conclusion: Hamilton was, in all likelihood, born and raised Jewish. While he did not identify as a Jew in his American adulthood, Hamilton emerged as an important advocate for Jewry in the United States. This story offers a fresh insight into a young republic, torn between New World promises and Old World prejudices.
