Studying Jewish history and Jewish heritage has never been easier. The interactive timeline presents Israel's history and heritage in a variety of areas, from the creation of the world to our days. A click on any topic in the timeline will open a ​​window with a brief explanation and links to additional sources. The application combines the history of the Jewish people along with the world's, Jewish demography, immigration, empires, periods, historical figures, leaders, literature and languages. Combining the different subjects and including both "traditional" and "secular" topics, allows the user to see the whole picture.

This tool makes it easy and enjoyable to learn and remember who the Jewish People are.
