Summary
  • "This book examines several eras of Jewish history through the author's travels in Israel, France, Spain, and Italy. High-lighting the colorful experiences of Jews in many diverse environments, Jewish Time-Travel can serve as a travel guide, or offer an imaginary voyage for the armchair traveler." "Beginning in Israel, Mae E. Sander explores the interaction of ancient Jews and Romans in locations such as Jerusalem, Masada, and the Galilee. Through studying their monuments, technology, and wars, the author explains why the Jews nearly disappeared from their original land by dispersing throughout Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East."
  • "Jewish Time-Travel then follows world-traveler Benjamin of Tudela (1127-1173) in search of several medieval Jewish communities in southern France. Although the Jews were expelled centuries ago, a few surviving buildings and streets recall their former presence in obscure towns where few tourists venture." "Next is a voyage to Spain. Historic material centers on a single family, the Abravanels."
  • "The last part of the book begins at the height of the Renaissance. Several Italian principalities welcomed Jews of many backgrounds, integrating them into Jewish communities that had begun in ancient Roman times. The author traces the history of cities that became their homes, along with their travels and accomplishments. Finally, Jewish Time-Travel explores Venice, past and present, with a visit to its famous Ghetto."--Jacket
