From Abraham and the birth of monotheism to the Holocaust and creation of modern Israel, the Jewish people's progress through time violates all the laws of human history. For centuries, some of the greatest minds have come to appreciate the profound impact that this tiny nation and this small piece of land have had on humanity, and have tried to unlock the great mystery that the Jewish story presents.

How did this people survive against all odds? This class explores the 3,800 years of Jewish existence and the centrality of the Land of Israel to the Jewish people.

Interesting to hear this viewpoint..especially at this time. Amazing history for the Jewish people. Instructor talked too fast for me with my hearing aides on. Looking at the audience I think age wise probably may have had the same problem.
