Sometime recently, I heard that on the back of the American one dollar bill, there is a Star of David. I don’t remember what show I was watching but they showed a zoomed in image of what looked like the “Star of David” above the eagle’s head. They said it was there because some Jewish guy helped the American revolutionary army way back in the day.
This intrigued me, so I decided to do some research myself. I found a couple sites that talk about this.
One site, called “Facts of Israel” said:
General Washington’s financial advisor and assistant was a Jewish man by the name of Hyam Salomon. During the cold winter months at Valley Forge when American soldiers were freezing and running out of food, it was Hyam who marshaled all the Jews in America and Europe to provide money in relief aid to these stranded American troops and turned the course of history. Without this help, Washington’s Continental Army, and the fate of the American Colonies would have perished before they could have defeated the British.
If you take a one dollar bill out of your pocket and look at the back at the Eagle, the stars above the Eagle’s head are in the six point Star of David to honor Jews. If you turn the Eagle upside down you will see a configuration in the likeness of a Menorah….both at the insistence of George Washington who said we should never forget the Jewish people and what they have done in the interest of America.
Check for yourself, take a look at the stars above the eagle on the back of the dollar bill. Do you see the Jewish 6-pointed Star of David on the back of the dollar bill? Do you think it’s linked to the story about a Jew helping the American Army in the late 1700s?
