Joan Comay's Who's Who in the Old Testament followed the history of Jewish people up to the end of the First Book of Maccabees in 135 B.C. In Who's Who in Jewish History she continues this fascinating story from that point up to the present day, a period of over twenty centuries.
Offering entries on the lives of nearly one thousand men and women, this guide provides and in-depth look at Jews who have made a significant contribution to the history and thought of their own people, individual Jews who have been eminent in the general life and culture of their time, and non-Jews who have had a special impact on Jewish history. Here in brilliant procession are scholars, courtiers, and martyrs, from Simeon Bar-Giora (leader of the first Jewish revolt in the first century B.C.) through Aaron of Lincoln (the twelfth-century English money lender) to Golda Meir (the fourth prime minister of Israel) and Elie Wiesel (Holocaust survivor and world renowned author). Including a special chronology of Jewish history, Who's Who in Jewish History is an intriguing parade of celebrated individuals from almost every area of human achievement.
