Throughout our 100th Anniversary year Rabbi Adler will be sharing some important moments from Adath’s history contained in the Linder Archives at the synagogue.

Eleanor Roosevelt – The Liberal Case for Israel

Recently, I visited the home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his presidential library in Hyde Park. The house is preserved much the way it looked when FDR died in 1945 and the museum at the library does an excellent job of telling the story of his presidency. One of the more interesting aspects of the site is how FDR’s wife Eleanor (who has her own abbreviation, ER) fits into the narrative. She and her husband were distant cousins, and she was the niece of Teddy Roosevelt, so she brought her own distinguished pedigree to the relationship.
