In the grand storytelling style that is his signature James Michener sweeps us back through time to the very beginnings of the Jewish faith thousands of years ago Through the predece. The Source is definitely a highly entertaining and extremely interesting work and I never lost interest It presents the panorama of history of the Holy Land particularly the Galilee through the agesI had to read it a second time to realize what a work of genius it isThere is so much in this incredibly long book that does depict the experiences and spirit of the Land of Israel and the Jewish people who originated in this remarkable landIn 'The Voice of Gomer' a Hebrew mother is commanded by G D to take steps that are difficult for her and her family but are necessary to save the Israelite NationHe introduces throughout the story various beautiful and strong spirited Hebrew women who have kept the flame burning such as the enchanting Kerith wife of Jabaal the builder in 'Psalm of the Hoopoe Bird' the beautiful compassionate and spirited Jael daughter of Rabbi Asher in `The Law' the lovely and gentle Elisheba in 'The Saintly Men of Safed' and the tough and idealistic Sabra Illana Hacohen in 'Rebbe Itzic and the Sabra'He does illustrate the depth of the attachment of the Jewish people to their homeland which was never broken as well as the cycle of persecution and the attempts by so many different groups throughout history to annihilate the JewsAll of this is being repeated in the latest struggle today of the Jewish people to hold onto their rightful homeland and survive against an evil people supported by a world in which it is fashionable to hate IsraelA world which is once creating a great injustice against the Jewish peopleThe young Hellenist Jew Menelaus in 'The Gymnasium' who is so determined to cut of all connections with his Judaism reminds me of the leftwing Jewish intellectuals who find it fashionable to side with the enemies of Israel by embracing pro Palestinian left fascismIn 'King of the Jews' we learn about King Herod and observe the portrait of a tyrant and about the cruel persecution of his people and in 'Yigal and his Three Generals' we see just how fierce is the will of the Jewish people to rule their own landAlways there are the wonderful sites and sounds of the Land of Israel and it's wonderful people especially it's beautiful children `What has happened to our beloved Sephardim' A man in still another corner shouted while in the center a group of women from Morocco sang and beat on drums precisely like the ones which had been used at Makor four thousand years before The music was wild and imperative and four little girls danced beautifully throwing their arms in the air and captivating the men including Cullinane as Jewish girls had done for generations out of mind and His three sons where married and his principal joy was in playing with his eleven grandchildren sitting on the steps of the Venus temple as they ran back and forth across the forumG D bless the children of IsraelMichener speaks about the birth of Judaism and Christianity in the Land of Israel and their place in the world giving insight with gems such as In these centuries when G D through the agency of preceptorswas forging a Christian church so that it might fulfil the longing of a hungry world He was at the same time perfecting his first religion Judaism so that it might stand as a permanent norm against which to judge all others Whenever in the future some new religion strayed too far from the basic precepts of Judaism G D could be assured that it was in error; so in the Galilee His ancient cauldron of faith He spent as much time upon the old Jews as He did upon the new ChristiansThe discussion between Count Volkmar and a Jewish Rabbi in 'The Fires of Ma Couer ' illustrate how wherever Jews are they always remember that their only true homeland is Israel and 'The Saintly Men of Safed' explores the flowering of the spiritual life of Judaism in the town of Safed in northern Israel in the 16th Century as well as how Safed was a town where Jews came from around Europe to escape persecutionTherefore we read in this chapter about the humiliation suffered by Jews in Spain Germany and Italy during this timeIn 'Twilight of an Empire' we see even in the 19th century how the Arabs conspired with a powerful Empire to deprive the Jews of land in their own homeland and how a young Jewish traveller from Russia comes across Jews whose ancestors always stayed in Israel throughout the DiasporaThere was always a significant continuous Jewish presence in that country which was never broken This book shows the Jewish presence throughout the centuries in the Land of Israel through the years through the chapters including the period between the Roman destruction of the First Temple in 70 CE and the rebirth of a sovereign Jewish State in Israel in 1948`The Law' recounts the vigorous Talmudic academies in Tiberius in the fourth century CEAnd then there is 'Rabbi Itzic and the Sabra' which draws on the sacrifices and ideals of the young Jews who fought and died to re establish the State of IsraelHowever there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that the Arabs living in Israel those who are today referred to wrongly as 'Palestinians' are descendants of the Canaanites And in fact all historical facts point to these people as being Arabs originating from ArabiaSo I don't know what he means by referring to the Arab archaeologist Jemail Tabari as a 'scion of Ur' and a 'descendant of Jabaal the Hoopoe'He never refers to these Arabs as 'Palestinian' simply because when this book was written in 1965 the label ' Palestinian' had not been invented to refer to these peopleNobody used this term in 1965 It only became fashionable later
