A BOOK OVERLOOKED BY MOST PEOPLE AND PUBLISHED FOR SALE MAINLY WITHIN THE JEWISH COMMUNITY STATES THAT THE ROCKEFELLERS ARE JEWS OF SEPHARDIC DESCENT (MEANING SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE JEWS). The book is entitled “The Grandees – America’s Sephardic Elite.” The author is Stephen Birmingham, who is recognized by the Jewish community as an expert on Jewish history.
The publisher of “The Grandees” is the Jewish owned publishing firm of “Harper and Row” of New York City. Mr. Birmingham also wrote the book “Our Crowd” about the family background of America’s wealthiest and most successful Jews. Both books have been hailed by Jewish publications as first class works in the documentation of Jewish history.
In “The Grandees” Stephen Birmingham reveals the existence of a very rare book which was published only for Jews some years ago. The work was published only for Jews some years ago. The work was compiled by the Jewish historian Malcolm H. Stern and entitled “Americans of Jewish Decent.” That book weighed 10 pounds and gave the history of 25,000 Jewish individuals in America. It is extremely interesting to note that only 550 copies of the book were printed and each copy was consecutively numbered.
The book was delivered to the top Jewish community leaders in America for their personal reference files in dealing with and contacting Jews who are “Marranos” (those Jews who “Pretend” to be Christians in their community but secretly hold to their Jewish faith and race when among their own kind).
