What It Is
The Society of Friends of Mikveh Israel is a society of people who support our historical congregation. Congregation Mikveh Israel has been an integral thread in the fabric of Philadelphia since 1740.  During the War of Independence, our members joined the ranks of the Patriots and fought in the Revolutionary Army, as well as financially supported the revolutionary efforts. In fact, Haym Salomon, a member of our congregation and an American hero, donated his entire fortune to the revolutionary cause, only to die penniless; such was his fervor and belief for this great country and the liberty it promised.  After the War of Independence, Congregation Mikveh Israel, together with the congregations of New York, Charleston and Richmond, wrote a letter to George Washington telling him how happy they were upon his becoming President of the United States. George Washington sent a reply that we still possess.  A copy is on display in our lobby. His letter is an eloquent expression of religious harmony and a statement of the most fundamental tenets of American democracy.
