Simon Schama presents this epic series exploring the extraordinary story of the Jewish experience from ancient times to the present day. Both deeply historical and utterly contemporary, this is a compelling film about distinctiveness and difference, separation and isolation, tolerance and prejudice. It is also a celebration of the ways in which Jewish thought, imagination, and achievement have transformed the world for us all.

I saw this wonderful story unfold from the beginning of the series and found I could barely wait for each sucessive narration. It was beautifully told and comprehensive in scope. The on-site locations added to this compelling history. I enjoyed it so much that I purchased it as a gift for a friend.

I missed this program when it was on our local PBS channel but really wanted to watch it as it had gotten very good reviews. Unfortunately, I haven't had time to sit down and watch it yet.

I watched part of this as it aired on PBS in the past. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wanted a copy so I could view parts I missed, and so I could share it with my sister. I really enjoyed watching the program. It was very informative.. Simon Schja,a does a wonderful job!
