Synopsis: Herod -- The Man Who Had to be King, is the story of the conflict between Herod, Rome and the Jewish people. It is the story of a conflict that takes the reader from the Land of Israel and Jerusalem to the bustle of Rome and the wide, colorful thoroughfares of Alexandria, from Syria to the heart of the Parthian empire, to Babylonia and Antioch. It presents a vast panorama of the Mediterranean region of some two thousand years ago, bringing to life the great Sages, the High Priest and the Temple service, Antony and Cleopatra, Cassius and Sextus Caesar, Alexandra, the proud Hasmonean and her children, Aristobulus, and Antigonus, another Hasmonean and contender for the throne of Judea and a bitter enemy of Herod. The peaceful Jewish farmers meanwhile tend their fields, living under the heavy burden of Roman taxation. And Herod is always there – the devoted family man of malevolent moods for whom no challenge is too great or bloody to reach his goal: He had to be King.

About the Author: Born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, Yehuda (Louis) Shulewitz moved to pre-state Israel in 1947 to study Jewish history at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He had previously received a degree in economics from the University of Illinois and served in the U.S. military in Europe during WWII. The murder of the Hadassah medical staff on its way to Mount Scopus and the subsequent Arab invasion of the nascent Jewish state put his studies on hold. Yehuda remained alone and hungry in a friend's Jerusalem apartment during the siege of the city. Later, he courageously made his way over the hills until he reached Tel Aviv, exhausted but safe. There he enlisted in Mahal – the overseas volunteer regiment of the Israel army. After Israel's War of Independence, Shulewitz returned to his beloved Jerusalem and, apart from occasional visits abroad, continued to live there until his passing in 2007. An observant Jew and gifted writer, his published materials include articles, short stories, and academic papers, as well as radio scripts, which were broadcast in many different languages. He also worked as the English editor of the Bank of Israel. Following his retirement, Yehuda Shulewitz researched and wrote this historical novel set during the Herodian period in the largely Roman-dominated Mediterranean region of that time.
