Jewish History: The Big Picture Leader's Guide Author: Ellen J. Rank
A useful tool for book clubs, adult education classes and study groups, the Leader's Guide to Jewish History: The Big Picture includes chapter overviews, core concepts, and discussion questions for each chapter of the book. Five "Big Picture" questions help stimulate discussion about the main themes in the book. Additionally, there is a concise overview of each of the five major sections, with questions to tie together the events of the historic period.
The Guide also presents projects that can help families or community groups increase their understanding of Jewish history and deepen their ties to their community, while they explore connections between Jewish history and important events in their own family histories.
