If any jew has doubts about their heritage, just study your history

Theres no doubt in my mind about the miracle of Jewish survival and the truth of our Torah. But if anyone has questions, all the answers can be found here, in our history.
Its living proof

About Jerusalem

This video is a very brief but true story for the people who don't know the true about the most important city of the world. The capital of Israel and soon the capital of the whole world.

The History of Jerusalem Cliff Notes

For those who know nothing about the history of Jerusalem, or who have been swayed by propoganda that it should not be the unified capitol of Israel, this is excelent for their short attention spans. Todah Rabah!

Very good for Bible students

I think if other important subjects like Jerusalem can be know by such media means it helps. Thanks for such programm.

A great piece of work to bring out the truth!

I have enjoyed watching this piece of film and narration. I thjank God for Jerusalem and the sacrifice that the Jews have given to the world the our preservation of faith, in many contexts. Shalom

One important fact left out

You left out one important fact - in order to placate the muslims, after conquering the temple mount ( Mota Gur broadcasts " Har Habayit B'yadanu")Israel gives control to them enabling them to stone Jews praying at the Kotel, excavate and destroy relics from their and forbidding Jews from praying on the mountain where Isaac was bound, Jacob had his famous dream and both temples stood

They do have that

They do have that, but they do seem to gloss over the good times in this video- like what actually happened in the 1st Temple era, instead of skipping from Shlomo building it to it being destroyed 410 years later. However, they did a great job on this film.
