Note: 
Written from an Orthodox point of view, this volume contains very selectively chosen events from Maccabean times (165 BCE) to 1999 when Ehud Barak was elected Prime Minister of Israel. Each event is portrayed as a "time capsule," which consists of a brief summary and a discussion of the Jewish historical significance of the event. Information sidebars, illustrations and graphics are used through out the book and for each event, both its date on the Jewish calendar and the cooresponding Common Era date are given. Includes a bibliography and index. The primary audience will be Orthodox students.
