This video takes us on a fascinating journey through 245 years of Jewish History, beginning with the story of Chanukah and the Maccabees’ defeat over the Syrian Greeks and ending with the defeat of the Bar Kochba revolt 65 years after the Temple was destroyed. Robert Messing uses Five Coins, with symbols still being used in Israel today, to illuminate these years of history and bring them to life. This talk was given at the National Jewish Retreat 2013.
