The history of the Jewish people – one of the oldest peoples of the planet – has become the property of all mankind, an important and integral part of world culture. The pages of this story are full of both dramatic and heroic events. Many of them are reflected in this book. It is intended primarily for children, but it will also be useful for their parents and grandparents, especially those who are not familiar with their historical past. Children are the future of any nation, they cherish and continue the glorious traditions of their people. From the younger generation depends on its further fate, its prosperity. And not only the duty, but also the parental duty to instill in them this love, to awaken in children an interest in the glorious history of their ancestors, to show that Jewish children have something to be proud of, something and something to believe. That’s what this book is for.
