Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray
Coinciding with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Gray is a first of its kind film that reveals the little known struggles facing American Jews during America's deadliest war. It examines a time when 10,000 Jewish soldiers fought for both the
North and the South, exposes Ulysses S. Grant's expulsion of all Jews in the territory, and tells the story of President Lincoln's Jewish doctor who served as a spy in the South, and how five Union Jewish soldiers received the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Narrated by Oscar-nominated screenwriter John Milius (Apocalyse Now). Voice of President Lincoln by Sam Waterston.
Special Guest: Anthony Smith, great-great nephew of Adolf Proskauer, a member of Springhill Avenue Temple and featured prominently in the film.
