Not one. None. We were not represented. Nope. No Jewish signers of the Declaration, but a number, including President John Adams, did not worship a trinity and did not believe in the divinity of Jesus. These were the three Unitarians who signed.

No. The Jewish population in the Thirteen Colonies (2,500) was too minimal to have influenced the signers of the American Declaration of Independence. The true influence behind the American Declaration of Independence was the philosophy of john Locke and the general concepts of the Enlightenment.

This is not to say that the Declaration of Independence is contrary to Jewish values, merely that no Jews had influence in its creation. Jews do oppose singular tyranny and have done so throughout history, usually because those tyrants violently targeted the Jewish population.
