Congregation Sherith Israel mourns... Lincoln's funeral...



Item # 650671

April 21, 1865

NEW YORK TRIBUNE, April 21, 1865 

* Congregation Shearith Israel
* Abraham Lincoln assassination
* Jews mourn the loss of the president


Although somewhat inconspicuous, perhaps the most notable item within this black bordered issue is the page 7 mention, under the heading "Portuguese Synagogue, Nineteenth Street," of the mourning services held at The Congregation Sherith Israel [Shearith Israel] on behalf of the late President. Synagogues did not often receive the same coverage as other places of worship, and the fact that the Congregation Shearith Israel (often called The Spanish and Portuguese Synagogue) was the oldest Jewish congregation in the United States only makes its mention all the more noteworthy. Details regarding the various services held throughout the city are also included (see images for details).

Additional significant content includes the ftpg. one column heads: "OUR LOSS" "The President's Assassin" "Further Rewards Offered" "Capture of Atzerot" "One of the Assassins Secured" "The Effects of the Assassination in Richmond" "Movements Of The Assassin" "Booth Again Reported in Penna." and more, with further reports on the inside pages as well.

Eight pages, all columns black-bordered with mourning rules, some foxing and minor creasing, but in overall good condition.

Eight pages, never bound nor trimmed, some foxing & light staining to the upper left quadrant of the ftpg. only, all columns black-bordered with mourning rules, average condition.
