Beginning with the creation of the universe in the Jewish year (3760 B.C.E.) and ending with the Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon in 5745 (1985). This volume employs chronologies and time lines to convey Jewish history's people and events. Kantor writes from the perspective of a traditional Jew, covering events such as the Flood, giving of the Torah, and the fall of the Tower of Babel, placing these within the chronology of history along with the Spanish Inquisition, the Holocaust, and the founding of the State of Israel.
