Beyond Time and Place

In the year 1741 BCE, Abraham began his long journey from Haran to Canaan - a journey which would change the history of the world and have a profound effect on the development of most major religions.

Throughout the ages there has been a fascination with Jewish history. People have questioned the "miracle of the continual existence of the Jewish people" - this despite the almost consistent world delight in their persecution and ridicule.

Studying history hopefully gives us a deeper understanding of who we are and why we are here. It is in the spirit of making Jewish history more meaningful and relevant that this site is presented.

"I do not think much of a man who is not wiser today than he was yesterday."
Abraham Lincoln
