Jewish History At A Glance

Jewish History At A Glance

I really like this poster graphic outlining Jewish history and key figures from Genesis until modern times.

While there is already a lot of information on here such major events in Jewish history, world events, Jewish historical figures, Jewish literature and Jewish population, I would suggest adding major Jewish contributions to the world from Einstein to Freud, from Columbis to Salk.

Also, I found that 23% of all Nobel Prizes (or 193 people) between 1901 and 2013 were awarded to people of Jewish descent–and the awards were across the fields of chemistry, economics, literature, peace, physics, and medicine.

We are not a very large people–just .2%–in terms of population, but we have a very rich history–a mixture of persecution and contribution.

Thank you Minna Blumenthal for sending me the link to this!
