Artist's Description

This design is based on a small excerpt from a 1790 letter from George Washington to the Hebrew Congregations of Newport, which says more fully “It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it were 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 in giving it on all occasions their effectual support.”

In these times, this sentiment of giving no sanction to bigotry nor assistance to persecution seems particularly relevant.
