Mordecai Noah and his failed Zionist efforts...
Item # 640048
September 16, 1825
CHRISTIAN MIRROR, Portland, Maine, Sept. 16, 1825
* Mordecai Manuel Noah
* Ararat, City of Refuge
The top of pg. 2 has a brief yet notable item: "Hebrew City--During the present month the erection of the new city of Ararat will be commenced with masonic and military ceremonies on Grand Isle, N.Y. facing the Grant Canal." This was the effort the famed Jewish leader/politician/patriot Mordecai Manuel Noah, and effort which would never come to fruition.
Page 2 also has a short item on the London Jews' Society (see). Four pages, never bound nor trimmed, various foxing, otherwise good.
