Thank you for your wonderful lectures in Jewish History. It has been so overlooked, so scarce and piecemeal and out of chronological order... You have filled an important gap in Jewish learning. Reply

To Ze'ev Please see the next lesson on Spanish ('Sephardi") Jewry. I think its important to understand that this is general overview of the Jewish story. The nature of recorded history is that it focuses on where the 'action' was at that time. So for example, much less is known about Babylonian Jewry after the ascent of Ezra to Eretz Yisrael than before. The spotlight moves. I would venture to say similar to Sephardi Jewry after the Spanish expulsion. Reply
