Jewish impact on US democracy

Intense Jewish participation in US elections has been nurtured by home-court conditions: The US considers Judaism a key factor in the foundation of its cultural, ideological, legal and political systems.

The trilateral covenant among the US, the Jewish people and the Jewish State was established by the Puritans during the 17th century, expanded by the Founding Fathers and sustained until today.

A marble replica of Moses’ head is featured at the House Chamber on Capitol Hill, facing the seat of the House Speaker.
