Linking to Lincoln on Chanukah

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/nation/article/linking_to_lincoln_on_chanukah

We need to celebrate a Lincoln Chanukah this year. It’s not because of the new Spielberg movie -- that gives us something to do on Christmas Day -- but because of the 150th anniversary of a little-known event in American history that threatened to expel a portion of the Civil War-era Jewish population from their homes on the Festival of Lights.
