This Tour Of Jewish and World History Is Presented By:




You are about to be transported through Jewish and world history, as seen within the framework of Jewish traditional sources. We seek to capture, present, and preserve this model. You will therefore experience history beyond the dry dates and facts.

Our basis recognizes a close link between G-d, the Torah, the Jewish people, creation, and the events of history. We will freely present history within these contexts, providing a degree of meaning and direction for history of all of Mankind.

Our sources are consistent with the Jewish Written and Oral Torahs. At times we draw upon the writings of the Kabbalistic literature, especially that of Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzatto.

There are many opinions regarding the dating of ancient historical events. We try our utmost to be consistent with traditional Jewish dates. We do not compromise upon the integrity of our sources and tradition. More about this when you get to the Time Warp.

As products of 20th century Western Civilization, we are accustomed to view life and events in a standard and popular way. During this tour, drawing upon your sensitivity you should be able to view and appreciate alternate ways of life.

We think that you will find the tour to be entertaining and most worth while.

  • While entertaining, the tour is non-secular and meaningful.
  • We think that you will find it to be a great tool for reference.
  • We hope that it will help you to appreciate and take pride in the role of the Jewish people.

The tour is being continually expanded to include additional detail and events. 

The tour will begin with the next page. The tour is quite exciting and intensive. You may want to spread it over several viewings.

Rabbi General's Warning: Unbridled web surfing is not recommended. Navigate the web with caution. Use the Internet in a way so that it enhances quality of life for yourself as a person, as a family member, and as a member in society. The Internet can enhance the mastery of Torah knowledge and it can also interfere. If you are able to study in a Bet Medrash at this time then you should do so right now.
