    Nice video. I'd heard of the notion in the past, but I like how it was presented in the video. So, what do you think?

    Just BTW, on the halachic side, if I remember correctly, though his mother didn't divorce her first husband and Hamilton's dad wasn't Jewish, he isn't a mamzer.

    Fascinating.

    There is evidence that Lincoln was of Jewish descent. He never joined a church, and stated that his religion was "the ten commandments." Jews referred to him as Rabbi Abraham. When he died, the entire Jewish community sat shiva.
