Product Description

From Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to contemporary Israel with its problems and conflicts, this lavish volume takes a fascinating journey through Jewish history. It chronicles the religion's principles and beliefs; key figures and events; and the diversity of Jewish culture that arose as, exiled from their homeland, they dispersed both east and west. Fifteen breathtaking rare facsimile documents include pages from the Vienna Genesis, the oldest illustrated Biblical codex; a letter describing one of the Russian pogroms in 1881; and a copy of David Ben Gurion's speech declaring Israel's independence in 1948. 

 
David J. Goldberg OBE is Rabbi Emeritus of the Liberal Jewish Synagogue, London, and is well known for his interfaith dialogue and involvement in Israeli-Palestinian peace initiatives. He frequently appears in the media as a commentator on Jewish and Middle Eastern affairs, and is the author of a number of acclaimed books on Jews and Zionism, including The Jewish People (Viking).
