Summary

At mention of the word "history," most people break out in a cold sweat. They remember back to high school where history was the memorization of names, dates, places and events -- necessary only for exams and then promptly forgotten afterwards.

The Crash Course in Jewish History is anything but. It makes history relevant interesting and dynamic. And it provides an overview and understanding of the central themes and events of 4,000 years of Jewish history.

The Jewish people are arguably the oldest surviving people on Earth, and because they have been spread out throughout the world, when we learn Jewish history, it's a great framework for world history, too.

Each of the 68 segments features a dynamic essay, plus a 3-minute video presentation. The essays can be read online, or printed in a beautiful PDF format.

This course also has interactive online testing. When you register, all your test results are stored in your personal online account, so you can track your progress as you study the material.

Benefits and features:

Do you want a solid grasp of Jewish history? Crash Course in Jewish History will get you there.
