Harriet the Hebrew??
- History of Israelites in America
Harriet Tubman became known as the “the Moses of her people” due to her contributions in facilitating the Underground Railroad. What is often not taught regarding Harriet is that she was given a Hebrew name at birth. Additionally, many of her relatives carried names of Hebrew origin.
Harriet’s birth name was Araminta, which is a given name in Hebrew meaning ‘lofty, noble, or elevated in character and spirit’.
