“Among Believers: Medieval Jews Struggle to Preserve Identity under Christian and Islamic Rule”

“The Story of the Jews” is a five-part television series written and narrated by award-winning British historian Simon Schama. It has been broadcast on the BBC in the United Kingdom and on PBS in America. Critics have written that “Schama has produced a series that is at once informative, entertaining, thought-provoking, heart-wrenching... The Story of the Jews is not only a chronological history, but also a common narrative of what unifies and fortifies the Jewish people through the generations.”
