From the origins of the Jews and the settling of the land of Israel to the current Middle East peace talks, this history of the Jews covers all the significant events in world history in which Jews have played a role. More than 8,000 entries in chronological order document the relationship of the Jews to the larger story of world civilization. The Timetables of Jewish History records the remarkable story of the Jewish people, in whose history is a repeating pattern. They establish, lose, and - many centuries later - re-establish self-rule; they flourish when allowed to live in peace; endure brutal persecution, and recover to accomplish extraordinary feats, all the while retaining a strong religious and cultural identity. The book also notes the outstanding achievements of individual Jews in politics, the arts, science, commerce, and religious philosophy.
The Timetables of Jewish History fills a gap in popular reference material on the Jewish experience worldwide. Meticulously researched, it is a reliable and authoritative resource, yet accessible to young and beginning students as well. All the information is arranged in the clear, easy-to-use Timetables format, and there are illustrations and maps, plus a glossary and index.
Offers a timeline from 9000 B.C. to 1991 A.D., tying important events in general history to Jewish history and culture
