Breakfast Table pictorial - Israel History & art. For almost 4000 years, the people and the land of Israel have inscribed fascinating pages in the annals of humans civilization. From the days of Abraham in the middle of the second millennium B.C.E., until our own times, this land and the Jewish people - a portion of it in the land and a portion of it outside it - have been a focus of interest quite disproportionate to its numerical size or to the geographical size of the country which in Hebrew is called Eretz-Yisrael... The book, in which texts by historians are accompanied by magnificent reproductions of art-works, archeological findings and landscape photographs, reveals Eretz-Yisrael in all its physical and spiritual splendor. A separate chapter is devoted to the history of the Jewish people in the Diaspora, which is also accompanied by reproductions of works of art and folklore... Measures 9 1/2" x 13 1/2". 158 pages.
