Lincoln, Moses, and America: The Essence of Biblical Statesmanship
part of our series on “Jews and the Civil War”
with Rabbi Meir Soloveichik
Streaming live Wednesday, June 16, 2019 at 6:30 PM EDT

Upon Lincoln’s assassination, the abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher compared Lincoln to the greatest Israelite in history: Moses. “There is no historic figure more noble than that of the Jewish lawgiver,” he said; now, in America, “a great leader of the people has passed through toil, sorrow, battle and war, and come near to the promised land of peace, into which he might not pass over.” In this final lecture we will examine what Moses meant to American history in general, and to Jews and Christians during the Civil War in particular. We will emerge with an understanding of the unique nature of biblical statesmanship, of Lincoln’s legacy, and of America itself.
