SIMON SCHAMA LOOKS AT THE IMPACT OF THE JEWS AND THOSE MOMENTS WHEN THE JEWISH EXPERIENCE HAS CHANGED THE FATE OF THE WORLD.


Travelling the globe from New York to Odessa, Berlin to Jerusalem, Schama tells ancient and modern stories that illuminate the passions and perplexities of the Jewish people today. Using the most recent revelations of archaeology, the series engages with Jewish art and architecture: from the spectacular synagogue mosaics of the Galilean city of Sepphoris, to ornate Torah scrolls from Persia; the glories of the illuminated books of the middle ages to the fierceness of Jewish modernists like Schoenberg and the populism of Jewish entertainers like Irving Berlin.
