Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A five-part miniseries covering 4,000 years of Jewish history, Jews: A People's History begins with the origins of the Jewish people in the Middle East, and traces their arduous journey to early-21st Century Judaism. By seeking clues about Judaism at archeological excavation sites, cultural hubs, and in written accounts of the Jewish Diaspora, the filmmakers offer deeper insight into the plight of the Jewish people, and enlighten viewers about the historical evolution of their faith.
