Jacob & Esau

15 a 20 dias

European histories have traditionally marginalised the Jews, while Jewish history has told an exclusively Jewish story. Malachi Haim Hacohen sets out to redress this through an ambitious and panoramic alternative Jewish European history that re-integrates the cosmopolitan narrative of the Jewish diaspora with traditional Jews and Jewish culture.
