Jewish Values: Ancient Israelites and Their Neighbors, The: An Activity Guide
Number of Pages:
An informative and interesting guide to the cultures of the ancient Israelites, Phoenicians, and Philistines. The time period covered is the Iron Age, from about 1200 BCE to 538 BCE. Presented in an informal, child-friendly style with two-color illustrations and maps, the text draws on historical, biblical, and archaeological sources to sketch the origins, religions, and daily lives of the three peoples. Each of the sections has chapters on history, architecture, clothing, language and writing, work, food, and religion - all amply illustrated with photographs of artifacts from each culture. Each section also has craft activities and recipes. A list of children's book and websites relating to the three cultures is included along with an extensive bibliography of scholarly sources and an index.
