These lectures study various individuals in Jewish history–the leaders and the led, the virtuous and the villainous. Some of the lectures feature more in-depth analysis of their lives and contributions, others are just excuses to discuss the larger historical times in which they lived. Each lecture is about 60 minutes in length. You may find the briefer Essential Lectures in Jewish History series useful for contextual information. Enjoy them in good health!
