Presenter: Avraham Groll
This session will explore the main Jewish migration patterns from Antiquity through the 10th century. Using a multitude of sources, we will discuss how Jews reached the land of Israel, where they resettled after multiple expulsions, and under what conditions they lived. By understanding the Jewish migration patterns, and the circumstances under which they lived, we will be granted a deeper appreciation of our collective Jewish heritage and family history. As part of this discussion, we will also discuss the dividing line between Antiquity and the medieval era, and its ramifications on future Jewish settlement and living conditions. This presentation is designed for beginners and is not a workshop. Maps, pictures, and documents will be displayed. Handouts with further information and a bibliography will also be distributed.
