Publisher's Summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Jews, then pay attention....

The Jewish people are one of the oldest living people groups on the planet. The Jews lived alongside the ancient Egyptians, Babylonians, Phoenicians, and Sumerians - all of whom have since disappeared from the pages of history. Yet the Jews still remain. Despite all of the odds, Jewish culture, language, laws, and religion have remained intact over the course of thousands of years. 

Even after being kicked out of their homeland and scattered all over the globe, the Jews were able to hold their customs close to their heart. While in exile, they developed special rules to live by through rabbinical works, such as the Talmud, which gave them a moral compass by which to live, no matter where they might end up. This was a great source of comfort for the Jewish people even while having to live in less than encouraging environments. Their traditions kept them strong.

excellent book

I am impressed. The author covers so much information that I didn't know. The author notes that throughout history, the Jews have been discriminated against and treated as inferior second-class citizens, even if they were native-born citizens of a country. I liked learning about the Maccabean Revolt and the Holocaust. After reading this book, I have a better understanding of the suffering of the Jewish people throughout history and the importance of the survival of the nation of Israel.
