As you will see, not all the courses are up and other aspects of the website are still in progress. Nevertheless, I am glad it is up. It is designed to be the address on the internet for anything to do with Jewish history. It not only includes the written courses I have been working on, but videos, a blog and more.
The written courses that I have been working on, and am continuing to work on, are actually reduced versions of a more complete rendition of history lectures adapted from Rabbi Wein’s widely-enjoyed tapes series, Travels Through Jewish History. The thought was that the longer versions (average of 3-4,000 words each) were too long for the Internet-surfing generation. These longer versions will hopefully also be available at some point.
I plan to share more about this, and other exciting writing projects I am working on, in the near future.
