About - Crash Course in Jewish History - 5 CD Series

All of Jewish history in five cd's! Become conversant with the fantastic story of the Jewish people over the ages. Buy Rabbi Berel Wein's "Crash Course in Jewish History" and become knowledgeable in this great story of civilization.

The Jewish story is almost 5,000 years old. It extends from Abraham leaving Mesopotamia until the return of the Jewish people in our time to the Land of Israel. Rabbi Berel Wein's series of five lectures gives a sense of history to the Jewish story and to the events of all human civilization. The story of biblical Israel, the Babylonian Exile, The Second Temple, the long exile of the Jewish people, the Crusades, the Spanish expulsion, the Renaissance and Reformation, the Enlightenment and Modernism, Zionism, the emigration to North America and the Land of Israel, the Holocaust and the creation of the State of Israel - all are covered in this informative and educational five-hour series.

Features - Crash Course in Jewish History - 5 CD Series

Crash Cours in Jewish History Includes:

- Biblical history showing how the early patterns set repeated themselves in the times of the prophets and kings. Your heart will soar as you follow the triumphs and tribulations of the Jewish people, and recognize the Biblical patterns affecting our lives today.

- The destruction of the First Temple marked a new era in Jewish history. With foreign empires dominating them, the Jews faced severe times. From Greek rule to the Hasmonean revolution, from Hasmonean corruption to Roman rule, Rabbi Wein paints a clear picture of how the destruction of the First Temple set the stage for the destruction of the Second.

- As Christianity and Islam gained political power, the Jews found themselves caught in the middle of tremendous and often violent conflict. Rabbi Wein traces the emigration patterns of the Jews from the sheltered exile of Babylonia to North Africa and Europe and describes how they adapted in their "host" countries. Many religious, economic, and social forces shaped what became the Ashkenazic and Sephardic communities, and out of each of these emerged the giants of Torah: Rashi and Rambam.

- Though every Jewish exile began peacefully with Jews even attaining wealth and prominence, eventually every exile turned bitter and violent. Rabbi Wein takes us through some of the grimmest periods in our history, the Spanish Inquisition and the Chmielnicki massacres in Poland. Amidst such danger, longing for the Messiah grew, and the worst messianic debacle in Jewish history, the rise and fall of Shabsai Tzvi, ensued. The massive disappointment after his failure, coupled with the ideals of the Enlightenment, created secularizing forces which continue to challenge Jews today.

- The emergence of the modern era brought about worldwide secularization and created a formidable divide in Jewish society. Many Jews were swept along and adopted the new ideologies of Reform Judaism, the haskala movement, socialism, and political Zionism. But amongst Traditionalists grew Chassidus, the yeshiva movement, and the mussar movement. Rabbi Wein leads us through these 18th and 19th century to the world wars of the 20th and the ultimate destruction of Eastern European Jewry. Yet modern miracles followed, and against the odds, Jews gained control of their own state of Israel. In a glorious end to this informative tape series, Rabbi Wein will leave you thanking God for this current moment in history.
