Do you have a vague sense that a lot happened between the Jews' presumed exodus from Egypt and our modern era–but you aren't sure what actually happened or where? Have you ever wondered how and why Jewish people dispersed from one small piece of real estate in the Middle East and came to live in every part of the globe? Do you want to know more but don't have the time or patience to read books on Jewish history? 

Using illustrations and maps, we will enjoyably learn the themes, geography and journey of the Jewish people. We will learn key events, where Jews lived and why, what languages Jews spoke,  key contributions Jews have made to the world and key ways that Jews responded to events and ideas in world history.  We'll learn where the ancestors of American Jews came from. 

Please obtain Barnavi's A Historical Atlas of the Jewish People from the Time of the Patriarchs to the Present, in advance. 

Back by popular demand, Roger Brewer, a life-long student of Judaism and Jewish History, will teach this course.
