Did Jewish history end in 1948?
Review by Gorgon on 10/07/21 review stating Did Jewish history end in 1948?
The film ends with the UN authorizing the Jewish state of Israel, but doesnt describe how the state has survived in the last 60 years. Possibly PBS feels that the anti-Israel BBC news that it runs regularly is enough to get Jews to support it with cash.

An incredible journey through Judaism!

This is one of the most comprehensive and informative DVDs I have ever seen, about the history of the Jewish people. I think that everyone would benefit from seeing this DVD, as it dispels many misunderstandings, myths and prejudices about Jews. Thank you for such a wonderful production. I am not Jewish, but my husband is. I gave him this wonderful DVD, as a Hanukkah gift and he was delighted with it. It affirmed who he is and where his people came from. Thank you! Vivian Squire

Our Jewish Heritage
Review by Dawna J. on 07/17/20 review stating Our Jewish Heritage
I watched as tears streamed down my face ~~ so proud to be of Jewish heritage. Not only did I buy a copy for myself but I am giving them for Chanukah to my family members who will one day share them with their children.

I used this Video to complement my Jewish History course for 11-12 year old students. Worked well after we finished the course as a recap.

I did not know anything about the history of the Jewish people and wondered and wanted to know of the fundamental reason why Hitler killed so many of them after visiting Owschvitz,Krakow and Warsaw in Poland. This book answered my questions very clearly and I am very satisfied. T.K.
