There is no more exciting story anywhere than the Jewish People's march through the menaces of history. It's a gripping, absorbing story, peopled by great names and arch-villains, full of courage and cowardice, and leavened with the conviction that the Chosen People must survive come what may. This volume traces the story from the 16th century to the present. This book is the work of two great names in today's Jewish literary world: YAFFA GANZ the acclaimed, award-winning author of children's literature; in collaboration with RABBI BEREL WEIN rosh yeshivah, rabbi, historian, and lecturer, whose history cassettes are the primary basis of the book. Lavishly illustrated and filled with maps and time charts, SAND AND STARS II brings the story alive. Especially recommended for young readers aged 10-16, it is fascinating reading for all ages. A perfect gift for bar or bas mitzvah, graduation or any special event
