Jewish Symbols in the American one dollar bill?

I received an email from a friend that described Jewish symbols in the American one dollar bill:

Click on image to enlarge
A while ago, at the West Point Academy's Jewish Chapel, there was a display about Hyam Salomon and the Revolutionary War. He died penniless, having used all his resources to aid the newly formed and poorly supplied American Continental Army.

This is a wonderful story sent to me by a lawyer friend that shares my interest in history. I hope you will find it of interest to you:

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.

Well, I decided to do a bit of research (isn't the Internet great?) and found at least one article that questions the above. Although Hyam Salomon's story is true, the rest might be just wishful thinking. See below for the scoop.





At http://www.ohr.org.il/ask/ask266.htm, in a website called "Ask the Rabbi", someone asked the Rabbi if the above story is true. Here's his answer:

Dear Steve Weiss,

The small Jewish community in colonial America gave more than their share toward the United States' revolutionary cause. One such patriot was indeed Hyam Salomon, who gave $300,000, an immense fortune for those days.

But I doubt that the "Great Seal of the United States" which appears on the dollar bill makes any hint to Salomon's contribution, or that George Washington had anything to say about it.

The first bill to bear this symbol was the $1 Silver Certificate, Series 1935, long after Washington's death.

The "Great Seal" itself was commissioned by Congress in 1776 and adopted six years later, but during this time George Washington was busy fighting the war. The designing committee, which included Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams, did not include Washington. Nor did Washington become president until seven years after this seal had been adopted, so it's questionable that he would have had any input.

The thirteen stars, representing the 13 original states, do indeed form the Star of David (also known as "Solomon's seal"). Exactly why, I don't know. In general, though, it's clear that Franklin and Jefferson had "biblical" motif in mind, as their original draft of the Great Seal showed "rays from a Pillar of Fire in the Cloud, expressive of the divine Presence and Command, beaming on Moses."

But don't worry. Hyam Salomon wasn't forgotten. In 1893, a bill was presented before the 52nd Congress ordering a gold medal struck off in recognition of Salomon's contributions to the United States.

Comments

The comments regarding Haym Salomon and the Great Seal of the United States are not correct. The final seal was designed by Charles Thomson and approved by the Continental Congress on 20 June 1782. When Thomson submitted his design, he included his "Remarks and Explanation" which describes what each symbol represents. The "Remarks and Explanation" was approved by the Congress and not one symbol represents, or was intended to represent Israel. The 1st US Congress ratified the design in 1789. You need to correct this information and issue an apology on your site for not verifying the historical facts. You can verify what I have stated by getting a copy of "The Great Seal of the United States" published by the US State Department, which is the keeper of the Seal.

Mr. Templeton,

No one ever said that the symbols intended to represent Israel.

In fact if you read my article in its entirety, I am very clear about the fact that I don't believe the email I received about the link between the Hyam Salomon and any Jewish symbols in the one dollar bill.

Please read the article TO THE END - I clearly say:

"Well, I decided to do a bit of research (isn't the Internet great?) and found at least one article that questions the above."

And then I link to a story that clears any ideas and leaves no doubt:

"But I doubt that the "Great Seal of the United States" which appears on the dollar bill makes any hint to Salomon's contribution, or that George Washington had anything to say about it. "

So why exactly are you asking me to "correct this information and issue an apology on your site for not verifying the historical facts".

I did verify the facts, I did say I didn't believe the story and I certainly don't owe anyone an apology.

If anything, you owe me an apology for not reading the full article and being so agressive.

This dialog regarding the symbols on the dollar bill is very interesting. Common sense tells me that it is very unlikely Solomon's Seal is there without purpose.

As a gentile (and a Christian that treasures the history of Israel and jewish influence) it seems that Americans should do a better job of educating ourselves. James Madison (who was educated by his mother, a scholar in the Bible and Hebrew Law) and George Washington treasured the Bible.

Any open minded Jew or Gentile should strive to see that our young people know the truth about Hyam Salomon and his financial sacrifice to see that the colonies win their freedom from the oppressive 16th century British government.

A true manorah has 7 stems not nine like the eagle's tail, but after the church was destroyed they decided not to duplicate anything from it so they started using a six branched manorah which is what the bible say u r to build u can find instructions for building a manorah in Exodus 25:31-40( a 9 branched manorah is only used on jewish holidays)

Posted by: ashleigh at January 16, 2003 01:35 PM


Still researching Jewish influence on The Great Seal of the U.S. Evidently there is a great deal of substance to it. If you click on the web address below, you'll discover, as I did, that the symbolism on the Seal is derived from the symbolism as portrayed in the Old Testament. The number 13, of course, was significant (13 colonies) and the 12 tribes + 1 of Israel corresponded handily. The fact that the plumes at the bottom only number nine (9) lends some credence to the contention that when viewed upside down it's meant to resemble a Menorah. Otherwise why wouldn't there be 13 plumes? My only question now is: Did Washington insist on these symbols to honor the Jewish contribution to the American Revolution, or were these symbols applied to the Seal because of the deep religious convictions in the Old Testament held by our forefathers?
I hope you're finding this as fascinating as I am.

The seven branch Menorah can be seen between the head and the tail when turned upside down.

Posted by: Audrey at February 14, 2003 09:35 AM


Actually, one quick comment. Someone said the hanukkiah - The nine branched manorah is used in Jewish Holidays. That's sort of incorrect. It's only used in one holiday, which is Hanukkah. And really, yes, it has nine branches, but the center branch, the feeder candle, is not considered one of the 8 candles. Meaning, the hanukkiah consists of 8 candles and the feeder candle. The center branch is usually raised up above the other eight, and really doesn't even have to be in the center. But, it is only used during hanukkah. :)

Actually, I was astounded to find out THAT according to a website "angelfire" All these symbols are related to the the pagan gd Zeus-incarnation. and that the stars form a pythoagorean tetrakys. The eye supposedly on top of the pyramid stands for the eye of horus-the Egyptian deity and everything else is explained in similar associated terms. Has anybody heard of this?? That all these terms are Masonic in origin?

masonic in origin is the theory put forward in the book "The Biggest Secret" by David Icke. He has allowed his book to be downloaded off the net for free.

this is what " George Washington " said :

GEORGE WASHINGTON, in Maxims of George Washington by A. A. Appleton & Co.: They (the Jews) work more effectively against us, than the enemy's armies. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties and the great cause we are engaged in ... It is much to be lamented that each state, long ago, has not hunted them down as pests to society and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.

Please inform me when and who designed the pyramid symbol on the $1US bill. Or steer me in the right direction.

Posted by: weaver at September 23, 2003 08:10 PM


Actually, I haven't seen one posting here that is completely factual on the Great Seal. Why is there such a big effort and great importance in always trying to assert 'Jewish' influence in as much as possible? Fact of the matter is Benjamin Franklin, Geo. Washington and many other Colonial leaders were either leery of, or outwardly suspicious of Jews. These are the facts on the design of the Great Seal: Francis Hopkinson, Congressman from New Jersey, had designed the American flag and Congress then asked him to design a prominent seal of which to represent and affix to official government business. Before he could finalize a design, Congress asked Hopkinson what he wanted for his extra work in designing the flag outside of his regular congressional duties to which he replied, a barrel of wine, to which the congress agreed. When he later inquired when he would receive his wine the congress then reneged on their promise and summarily scolded him for demanding payment from the peoples purse. The congress then, most likely as censorship, or punishment, decided to ask several other people to contribute Great Seal designs of which the congress took parts from several of those designs and incorporated them into the final design we see today. Hopkinson, who is an ancestor in my family, can be credited with only a small contribution to the final design of the seal and never did get his wine. The American Flag was his design and his signature is on the Declaration of Independence.

The ACLU recently threatened to sue the county of Los Angeles if they didnt remove a cross from among many other historical symbols on the county seal. I asked them if they intended to pursue the Star of David on the dollar bill with equal zeal. Thus far they have refused to answer.

It is indeed true that George Washinton was influenced by True Monotheism, and may well have been a Ben Noach. Sadly, other actibe forces were not so Judaic in their thinking, and while the top of the seal, the Eagle may have been G-dly; the hidden part of the seal, the Pyramid with the eye, was staunchly pagan. The American people and Israel uphold HaShem, as did Washington, while hidden conspirators whose goal has been to undermine Judaism had other plans. In spite of the fact that America and Israel both uphold the Ten Commandments, the Supreme Court demands that they be taken down (while the idolatrous "Cross" remains).

Eventually, the world view of Washington and the Founders was undermined by Social Darwinism and eugencisim, promoted by Skull and Bonesmen. Washington warned us that only Divine Law (which he may well have known was encapsulated in the Seven Laws of Noah) could save us. The "enemies to be hunted down" did NOT mean Jews, but other forces that were indeed subversive. Washington'a affiliation with Freemasonry was NOT of an occult nature. I do not excuse it, but it was not pro world socialism.

Jefferson and Franklin were not so discerning, and were taken in by those forces desiring world socialism. It was they who designed the "reverse" of the seal, the pyramid with the eye. I believe that Washington knew better, but could not get America founded as a Noahide Torah State but was over-ruled by the Scottish Rite Masons and their Jesuit allies who desired the commercial Republic. Sadly, Haym Solomon also refused to take a stand, being influenced by "Haskala" so-called.

The bottom line is that there is a difference between the Eagle and the Hexagram, which is Monotheist, and the pagan "reverse" of the seal. All the best,

A True Monotheist

Is it just me or did that last comment make you feel as if you had temporarily entered a badly written episode of "x-files". Though, if "the true monotheist" was joking, it was pure genius.

Get a grip- for intelligent people we are required to exercise the grey matter- whomever it was that told about the pagan references in the symbols, was an intelligent person, do some research, at length, find out the frightening truth about our fore Fathers. The people that are in the real know of what is really going on, and what they have in store for the uninformed masses of humanity. There is a terrible time coming, dear people, please study.But the great news is ,that in the long run, Truth and Holiness wins. We have a responsibility to our awesome Father in Heaven to spread the news and to inform.

READ THIS AND CHECK YOUR SOURCES NEXT TIME:

This quote is a recasting of something Washington did say, providing just enough of an aura of authenticity to sound believable. What Washington actually wrote (or, at least, what is attributed to him in Maxims of George Washington), regarding currency speculators who sought to profit by taking advantage of soldiers and others during the Revolutionary War, was:

This tribe of black gentry work more effectually against us, than the enemy's arms. They are a hundred times more dangerous to our liberties, and the great cause we are engaged in. It is much to be lamented that each State, long ere this, has not hunted them down as pests to society, and the greatest enemies we have to the happiness of America.
Washington's private life and writings reveal no evidence of anti-Semitism, and his public attitude towards religious tolerance was well expressed on a 1790 goodwill visit he paid to Newport, Rhode Island, during his first term as President. When a goodwill address was presented to him by the Hebrew Congregation of Newport, Washington responded by penning "the first presidential declaration of the free and equal status of Jewish-American citizens":

The Citizens of the United States of America have a right to applaud themselves for giving to Mankind examples of an enlarged and liberal policy: a policy worthy of imitation. All possess alike liberty of conscience and immunities of citizenship. It is now no more that toleration is spoken of, as if it was by the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection, should demean themselves as good citizens.

Where you will find this link,
http://www.adl.org/special_reports/franklin_prophecy/franklin_documenting_fraud.asp

which thoroughly debunks that nonsense.

As to Chaim Solomon, here's a little info on him, and a few other Jewish patriots, without whom the USA would probably never have come to be.
http://www.mikvehisrael.org/TheCemeteries/
http://www.jewishworldreview.com/jewish/salomon.asp

The official US Gov history tells us that...
"He seems to have been drawn early to the Patriot side and was arrested by the British as a spy in 1776. He was pardoned and used by the British as an interpreter with their German troops. Salomon, however, continued to help prisoners of the British escape and encouraged German soldiers to desert. Arrested again in 1778, he was sentenced to death, but managed to escape to the rebel capital of Philadelphia,..."
and
"From 1781 on, Salomon brokered bills of exchange for the American government and extended interest-free personal loans to members of Congress, including James Madison."
http://www.nps.gov/revwar/about_the_revolution/haym_salomom.html

The following is from the website with the most complete info I could find, about Mr. Solomon.
"Solomon came to New York in 1772 and joined the Sons of Liberty. He was a brilliant financier and one of George Washington's personal friends."
and...
"He was the paymaster-general of the French military forces in the early years of the United States. It is asserted that more than $100,000 which he advanced was never repaid. He lent the young United States government about $600,000, and at his death about $400,000 of this amount had not been repaid. This was irrespective of what he had lent to statesmen and others while performing public duties and trusts. Jacob Bader Marcus wrote in Early American Jewry that the sum owed to Solomon was $800,000."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haym_Solomon

....ASIDE ON THIS LAST: Jews provide perhaps 1/2 the capital and many other resources, without which the USA would still be Brittish, and now the USA returns the favor by whittliing little Israel away, and feeding her limb by limb to the mortal enemies of us both. There's something seriously wrong with this equation.

As usual, the truth is more awsome than the myths; that is, unless one prefers tea-leaves by the light of a full moon.

Our American public school books do not include information about the contribution of Haym Solomon to the American revolution without whom we would undoubtedly have lost the war with the British. He is a true American hero. He is a Jew.
It seems American public school hisorians have their own agenda in withholding this information from the American student body.

Posted by: ellie weingardt at April 26, 2007 07:20 AM


I am currently researching a story about Haym Solomon. I am told that it is a Jewish custom for men to fold their tallits in a triangle. I am also told that Washington was the first to fold an American flag into a triangle in honor of Solomon. Can anyone confirm or deny?

Concerning the actual, historical figure of Chaim Salomon and how he, almost single-handedly, saved the American Revolution from collapse, the best source of information on his life and work is "Chaim Salomon and the Revolution," by Charles Edward Russell, Cosmopolitan Book Corporation, New York, 1930. It is well-written, well researched, and thoroughly documented.

Quoting from the last pages of the book (299-300):

"But for the truest monument to Chaim Salomon is the imperishable result of his labours. If he had done no more than to keep James Madison and James Wilson in the public life he would have marked American history indelibly, if not unostentatiously, for these men were among it's makers and directors.

If had done no more than to keep Robert Morris solvent and the credit of the United States from ruin that would have been enough, for if the Revolution had collapsed when it was most beset in 1781 there would have been no United States. But he did even more. He testified to the world that Americanism is not a matter of so-called race or birthplace or descent but full of faith and faith alone. It's truest exponents might have be born anywhere and still be its undisputable sons"Ö." No reward was of glory or eminence or praise or position waited upon his part and, so far as we can discover now, he considered them not at all.

He wore no uniform, clanked no sword, bore no title and had no acclaims as he went through the streets. He was never a member of Congress; from the rights and privileges of all the other citizens he was, even in liberal Pennsylvania, largely debarred. But beyond any doubt, he toiled like a man on a treadmill and gave all his possessions for the thing he believed in. We know that rare and high spirits in this world find in service something that exceeds in value all applause or fortune. This man seems of that order."


Daniel Greenhill.

I feel we should emulate the state of Israel. I am not learned in history but the country of Israel was not in existence for 1800 plus years I believe they have more than paid for their sins on earth. They are Godís chosen people and we should stand by them always.

Posted by: Cosme at December 20, 2007 12:11 AM


Thumb through your Old and New Testaments just to find the name "Israel" and then the name "Jerusalem". You will discover that FOREVER God will hold Israel in His protection, no matter how foolish that seems as we view their plagued history. Israel is still "the apple of His eye". You'd better bless 'em, because He says so. Look it up! Nothing has happened to them that was not predicted in Scripture centuries ago, and, amazingly, everything happened just as God had His prophets describe it. I'm a Gentile, and Christian believer, and Jew-lover.

Regarding the '$600,000' that he 'loaned'.
It was actually the amount of Bills of Exchange (for France) that he SOLD, and MADE made 2.5% on each sale. A myth grew up that he had lent the young United States government about $600,000. He did NOT.

Well, what about the Illuminati theory? I don't know if I'm the only one here, but according to many sources, the first image (unfinished temple with all seeing eye) is an Illuminati figure, and the Great Seal greatly resembles the bird, representing the Freemasons, especially with its 32 feathers on the left wing and 33 feathers on the right. It has much more depth to it than a simple design, or even anything about Israel. The 9 tail feathers represent the Masonic 9 degrees of the York rites. Keep in mind that most of the presidents were actually Freemasons. Even the owl on the front of the bill (top right corner in front) supports the dollar being a product of Freemasons. As for the 13 stars forming a hexagram, 13 is a favored number of the Masons and the hexagram it forms is also one of their symbols. There is much more about the dollar bill that complies with the Illuminati "conspiracy theory" such as "annuit coeptis novus ordo seclorum" which means "announcing the birth of the new world order." Weird stuff, no?
Although I admire Israel for being such a great nation that has been able to survive admist the battles and also for fearing God, it is not because of them that our dollar is like that.

Why are people so quick to put down the jewish people? Most of the world symbols come from the 66 book of the bible. A secular unbias read of the founding fathers would conclude a fear of god and part of that would be through Jesus (a jew).

I done have a dog in this fight but I am humored over how quick people are to conclude based on fear, hate, prejudice, etc. Human nature is so quick to want to be right ant the cost that is to great when it is at the expence of people. Some of this I suppose will never be settled, and most will not put the time in and part of the research of that is to study the bible for nothing more than an intelligent opinion whether U believe in god or not. if U do that, U will more than likely conclude that the founding fathers were off the charts believers of god and were influence strongly and would get thown out of most fundimental churches today.

I vaguely recall a few things I read in an old book about the symbolism of the back of a dollar bill...

I recall reading that the eye above the pyramid wasn't originally an eye... but was the Hebrew letter ayai...or however it was spelled... I recall that it looked like the pie symbol.

Also that there are two trees growing at the base of the pyramid... on each corner, and that they were representative of the tree of life, and the tree of knowledge...

Also that the smaller pyramid with the eye in it wasn't actually over the larger pyramid, but that it was set in the distance... don't remember why.

That there were over 100 different jewish words that actually comprise the seams of the stones in the pyramid...need a magnifying glass to see them.

I recall something about the wings of the eagle being apocolyptic...but don't recall enough anymore about that...

As previously noted, the Star of David above the eagle's head...also how the shield, when looked at upside down, represents the 6 candles with the longer 7th one in the center...

The clouds around the Star are significant of something too....can't recall...

Something was significant about the "olive" branch as well... there was meaning to the number of fruits, and also leaves... and I have a nagging memory that it seems that the olive branch wasn't actually olive... again, my memory fails me...

there was also significance to the number of arrows clutched...

sorry that I don't have more info... but this was over 20 years ago that I read it...

The links given that expose the myths of Washington and Franklin being anti-semitic, and showing the those quotes as originating in Nazi literature provide the same information as a book I read last month. It also asks the question, Is there a conspiracy ween America and the Jews? The author says, yes, of common values on human life, a common heritage, a dedication of improving the human condition through compassion and tolerance of differences, a conspiracy of freedom.
I am not Jewish, but cherish our shared Judaeo-Christian values rooted in the Ten Commandments, a belief in the Creator, and respect for all human life.
