On a national level, the Library of
Congress in Washington, D.C., has
opened the exhibit "From Haven to
Home: 350 years of American Jewish
Life."
"It's a very significant exhibit,"
Cantor said.
It includes original items, including
the letter from President George
Washington to the Touro Synagogue in
Newport, R.I., one of the nation's first
synagogues.
"It stated that there shall be no big-

otry in this country," said August, who
was at the opening of the exhibit, which
is traveling to Boston, Cincinnati and
Los Angeles over the next year. August
was emotionally moved when he read
the original documents that also includ-
ed a copy of the Emma Lazarus poem
engraved on the Statue of Liberty.
"This was the first and only country
up to that time," Cantor emphasized,
"where Jews were guaranteed their reli-
gious liberty. That's astonishing."
U.S. District Judge Avern Cohn, hon-
orary chair of the local 350th
Celebration committee, said, "America
became a new part of the diaspora. It
became the place where Jews prospered
more than in almost any other country."
Thousands of other events are under
way around the country in honor of the
first Jewish community in America,
August said. The National Foundation
for Jewish Culture, for example, com-
missioned a work by the Paul Taylor
Dancers that will be performed in Ann
Arbor this season. And this High
Holiday season, many rabbis discussed
the anniversary's significance in their ser-
mons.
