Hebrew Almost Became The Official Language Of The United States [“Day Trips to Jewish History” By Libi Astaire]
“Day Trips to Jewish History” is a collection of essays about lesser known people and places in Jewish history.
Who was the New World’s first Jewish author? Why did some medieval money-changers cover their hair? Which Jewish woman became queen of a North African people? And what’s the truth about the story that claims Hebrew almost became the official language of the United States?
Join journalist and historical novelist Libi Astaire for a fascinating journey down some of the less-traveled roads of the past in her latest book, “Day Trips to Jewish History.”
Libi Astaire is also the author of the award-winning Ezra Melamed Mystery Series, a historical mystery series about Regency London’s Jewish community; Terra Incognita, a novel about Spanish villagers who discover they are descended from Jews who were forced to convert to Christianity during the Middle Ages; The Banished Heart, a novel about Shakespeare’s writing of The Merchant of Venice; and several volumes of Chassidic tales.
